"The curriculum offers a wide variety of subject matter. Not only is the variety good, but areas such as tax law and intellectual property have surprising depth due to the number of classes offered."
The LSU Law Center features the only joint degree program, Juris Doctor/Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law, in the United States and is only one of two such programs in the Western Hemisphere.
Participation in job fairs and consortiums offers a unique opportunity for students and employers to make contact with one another, while reducing the financial expense and time commitment. Job fairs also allow students to interview with both in-state and out-of-state employers that typically do not participate in on-campus interviewing. As a result of the large number of students that employers interview during on-campus interview programs, job fairs are typically designed as an alternative way to meet. The fairs allow employers to target a particular student population or practice area, thus satisfying an identified hiring need.
Job fairs do not guarantee you a position, but will provide you with opportunities to interview if you meet the necessary hiring criteria. Many students receive summer associate positions through participation in job fairs.
Job Fairs and consortiums are typically open to schools by invitation only. The LSU Law Center consistently seeks opportunities to expand job fair invitations in an effort to provide more employment opportunities for the general student body. We welcome any information, and will be happy to follow up with any contacts that you may establish during your individual job search.
The LSU Law Center currently participates in the following job fairs:
