McGeorge School of Law

3L Sprint to the Finish

Job searching is tough in the best of times. We know that.

But we also know that you have what it takes to find a job.

Your training and preparation will pay off, and we'll be there every step of the way to support you and give you job-search ideas, mentor connections, document preparation advice, career consultation and encouragement. We're also tracking available entry-level jobs for you, so be sure to check MCO often. Beginning in August you'll receive a biweekly eNewsletter that contains all of the above and more.

Keep in touch, and let us know how we can support you.
