The Center for Professional Development (CPD) is an office of attorneys with over 15 years of collective practical experience that assists students in making informed career decisions. The Center prepares students to enter the profession by showcasing employment opportunities and programs that equip students to succeed in a professional environment and foster growth in integrity, service, leadership and professional conduct. In addition to daily counseling and planning, the Staff meets annually with each of the College’s 300+ students to develop, update and finalize each student’s professional plan. This process allows the student to articulate post-graduation objectives and outline steps by which to achieve them, thereby laying a solid foundation for success with each student’s personal values.
The Center for Professional Development utilizes Twitter to provide links to relevant articles and breaking news related to the legal industry. This information can pertain to everything from interview tips to the up-and-coming practice areas and is applicable to both past, present, and future law students.
