Job Searching Research Guide

This guide outlines library resources that will help you research potential employers and prepare for job interviews.


This guide outlines resources available at the Georgetown Law Library to help you research potential employers and prepare for job interviews. Georgetown Law's Office of Career Strategy (for JDs), Office of Public Interest and Community Service (for JDs), and Office of Graduate Careers (for LLMs) can assist with Career Exploration & Professional Development, including identifying specific job openings.  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 websites that provide extensive information.

Getting Started

Need Access to Job Searching Resources at Another School?

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 Office of Career Strategy 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.
