Alumni Career Counseling

alumni services

The Career Services Office at Boston Law School is available to assist you in making job-related transitions throughout your legal career.

You are welcome to attend any programs sponsored by Career Services. Please see the Events page for more details. If you plan to attend an event, please call the Career Services Office at (617) 552-4345.

Please note, that due to the recent economic situation, there may be at least a one-two week waiting period to speak with a BC Law Career Counselor. We are doing out best during these difficult times to respond to alumni while at the same time counsel all of our current students.

Please let the office know your situation when you call to request an appointment. Access to job postings on Symplicity and BC LawNet are always available to all alumni.

Thank you for your understanding.

To request an appointment, e-mail (1) a copy of your resume, (2) a summary of your current employment situation, and (3) the nature of your inquiry or a description of your current search to law.career@bc.edu

In the meantime, you may also utilize the services we have provided for BC Law Alumni:

  1. Sign up for BC LawNet  to network with fellow alums
  2. View our Alumni Transition Handout
  3. Register for Symplicity to access the Alumni Job Database
