Job Placement

The Office of Student Employment endeavors to place each student applicant in an on campus position. The following guidelines dictate where student applicants are placed:

  1. First-year Law students with a federal work study award are first considered for employment in the Law Library and Information Technology Services department. When those positions are filled, students will be considered for employment in other departments on the School of Law campus.
  2. All Law students who do not have a federal work study award may be considered for employment in any department that has university funding available for student labor.
  3. Second- and third-year Law students (with and without a  work study award) are given preference for employment in available faculty research assistant positions.
Common Employment Opportunities

Student employees work in all departments throughout the Law School campus. Students serve as receptionists and provide office support in administrative offices. The Law Library relies on students to staff the circulation desk, shelve books, process interlibrary loans, and maintain library catalog databases. Students also staff the Information Technology Services Help Desk and provide computer technical support for the entire law school campus. Faculty members employ second- and third-year law students as research assistants.

Positions are available on a rolling basis throughout the year; however the fall semester is the time of year when the most number of positions are available. View Open Student Employment Positions »
