Diversity at Marquette Law: Career Resources
A successful job search often requires a partnership between Marquette Law School’s Career Planning Center (CPC) and each student. CPC exists to provide Marquette law students and alumni with the information, tools, and connections to enable them to define and effectuate a career path that is a good fit between individual and job, as well as assistance, encouragement, and support in mounting an aggressive, creative, and thorough job search. A wide variety of services, including individualized career planning and advising, skills workshops, speakers, and panel discussions, are offered. Be sure to check out the entire array of resources available at the Career Planning Center.
The State Bar's first-year law student Diversity Clerkship Program is a limited-term summer employment opportunity that affords first-year law students of diverse backgrounds the opportunity to build legal practice skills and knowledge. It is an employer-student assignment program. Students are assigned to private law firms, corporate legal departments and governmental agencies. Student clerks gain valuable legal experience; employers obtain valuable legal support. The program offers employers and students a unique opportunity to share experiences and to promote diversity in the legal profession.
Each year, Marquette law students participate in the Diversity Clerkship Program offered via the State Bar of Wisconsin. The Career Planning Center assists students with the application process and procedures.
