Law Clerking

During law school, students frequently work in law firms to earn money, to gain experience and to augment their marketability. Through the online Symplicity service, the Career Development Office announces part and full-time law clerk positions. Students who have attended a mandatory information session, and have had their resume reviewed by the Career Development Office counseling staff, are invited to register on Symplicity. For instructions and a password, please contact Career Development Recruitment Coordinator,. in Career Development or read more about Symplicity for Students/Alums.

Often graduated students awaiting bar results fill law clerk positions until bar admission. Alumni may continue to access Symplicity job postings.

Enrolled students are reminded that the American Bar Association Standards dictate that full-time law students enrolled in more than 12 units may not work more than 20 hours per week.
