Career Development Office
The resources of the Law School’s Career Development Office (CDO) are available to all law students, both JD and LLM/SJD, as well as to all alumni of Tulane Law School. The staff includes five professional career counselors, each of whom functions both as a generalist and as a specialist in a particular practice setting or practice area. In addition to extensive individual career counseling, staff members develop and maintain relationships with employers throughout the United States and abroad and create programs to educate students about job search skills as well as practice-related topics. The most important role of the Career Development Office is to work with students to reach their professional goals. The CDO has walk-in hours Monday through Friday from 2:00 until 4:00, and counselors are also available by appointment. Please stop by the CDO or email your counselor to schedule an appointment.
