First-year students

“The Career Service Office has been nothing short of amazing. They do everything in their power to assist you in finding the perfect job or internship. Personally, they helped me with my résumé and cover letter, which helped me lock down a job this summer at the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.” —Nicholas Babaian ’20 [Back to top.]

Second- and third-year students

  • New England Law | Boston was the first law school in Massachusetts to offer students a free, one-year membership to the Boston Bar Association (BBA). Students who join the BBA have access to hundreds of free educational programs, networking opportunities, and social events at the Boston Bar Association.
  • The CSO's weekly job posting listserv helps members of the graduating class find employment. [Back to top.]

Because of the large number of law schools in Boston and the region, the local legal employment market is very competitive. Students must remain open to various job possibilities and are urged to consider opportunities outside the Boston area. Career planning and placement are the individual responsibility of each student and graduate.  The Career Services Office supports this effort by providing guidance and assistance to both current students and alumni.
