  • workshops on job searches
  • resume and cover letter drafting
  • networking and interview skills
  • mock interview and resume clinics
  • career related panels and speakers from specialized areas of practice

LL.M. students and alumni also have access to an extensive career resources library, located in the BU Law Career Development & Public Service Office, and to the law school’s online job posting database.
