On-Campus Interview Program:
- How to make appointments: Students and alumni can sign up for an appointment with a counselor through Symplicity, via email, or by calling the CSO, (305)623-2351.
Each fall and spring, the CSO hosts the On-Campus Interview (OCI) Program. OCI attracts law firms, government agencies, and public sector employers looking to hire students for summer and permanent positions.
Mock Interview Program:
The Mock Interview Program occurs every year in preparation for OCI. All students are encouraged to participate; however, in order to participate in OCI students must complete a mock interview.
Lunch and Learn Programs:
Lunch & Learns take place weekly, and consist of presentations provided by practicing attorneys, business etiquette experts, judges, and other professionals. In addition, CSO counselors provide sessions regarding career-development topics such as networking, job search strategies, interviewing, and resume/cover letter formats.
Bar Informational Session:
Each November, the CSO organizes a Bar Information Session. The session addresses frequently-asked questions, common bar application errors, legal issues, and test-taking accommodations for students with disabilities. Twice a year, typically November and January, a professional fingerprinting service comes on campus.
STU Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP):
The goal of the LRAP is to encourage St. Thomas University School of Law graduates to pursue public interest careers. For more information, click here.
