Training Programs and Publications
The Career Development Office (CDO) provides materials and organizes seminars on how to pursue a career in law and related areas. Individual counselling is provided on the drafting of a curriculum vitae and cover letter as well as preparing for interviews. Workshops on Effective Résumé Writing and Developing Interview Skills are offered regularly. A Mock Interview Program assists students in preparing for meeting with potential employers.
The CDO is also pleased to offer several panel discussions and networking events throughout the year at which practitioners discuss their area of specialization with law students and then welcome open-forum and mingling discussions with those present. Through these events and others, the CDO is making efforts to increase student employment opportunities in the Montreal community, elsewhere in Canada, and abroad.
The CDO publishes various guides to assist students with their preparations for life beyond the Faculty of Law. These include: The Career Development Guide, The International Law Career Guide, The Public Interest Career Guide, The Graduate Law Students' Career Guide, and The Smaller Firms and Solo Practitioners Career Guide.
