Placement Office


Class of 2011 employment statistics show that graduates continue to be highly valued in the legal marketplace. According to U.S. News & World Report (2013), Florida State is the nation's 23rd best, and Florida's best, law school in terms of the percentage of 2011 graduates employed nine months after graduation in full-time, long-term, Bar admission-required or J.D.-preferred jobs. The Wall Street Journal has reported that we are the nation's 25th best law school in terms of placing graduates in jobs that require law degrees.


We provide assistance to law students, graduates and legal employers through our Placement Office. The office maintains a current database of entry level and lateral job openings in the legal field and coordinates the Alumni Placement Mentoring Program, which connects students with alumni for guidance about employment. Seminars and workshops on career options, resume writing and interviewing skills are also available. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the law school’s interviewing programs and individual career counseling services.


Each fall and spring semester, students have the opportunity to interview with a variety of employers on campus. Representatives from private firms, government agencies and corporations in Florida and elsewhere visit our campus to interview students. They hire summer interns and clerks as well as new associates. The Placement Office also coordinates off-campus interviewing opportunities.
