Employment in Academia

Recent law graduates sometimes find positions in higher education administration, as well as in teaching. Some areas of employment options include admissions, financial aid, academic counseling, student affairs, career development and diversity offices. Other options also include working as adjunct faculty, writing instructors, and clinical fellows at law schools. Additionally, graduates may work in law libraries, but a Masters of Library Science degree is often required, or candidates must be working toward the degree at the time of application.

If you are interested in pursuing this path many will advise you to take the bar exam and work for a couple years to be sure this is the route you want to pursue. Alternatively, if you have worked in higher education administration before, you may have an easier time finding employment directly out of law school.
