This guide outlines library resources available at Georgetown University Law Library which will help you investigate potential employers and prepare for job interviews. Georgetown's Office of Career Strategy and Office of Public Interest and Community Service (for JDs), and Office of Graduate Careers (for LLMs) can assist you in locating specific job openings, to assist with Career Exploration & Professional Development. Also, the Office of Alumni Affairs has created The Network of Georgetown Law alums for job networking prospects.
Our guide does not attempt to outline the myriad of web-based job search engines. It is important to remember that almost all law firms, government agencies and other legal employers maintain their own web sites that provide extensive background information.
NALP member law schools support a policy of providing job search assistance to students and graduates of other schools through reciprocity. This allows law schools to provide reasonable access to their career resources for law students and graduates from other law schools that agree to provide similar services.
Similarly, the Career Services Office at Georgetown University Law Center provides limited access to its resources to students and graduates of fellow law schools under certain conditions.
Please see the Georgetown Reciprocity Policy for additional information.
