Career Development Office


Ensemble, nous travaillons vers l'avenir

The Career Development Office (CDO) acts as a liaison between law students and legal employers to ensure both a coherent flow of information and the continuity of relations between students, employers and the Faculty.

The CDO is a guided research facility, directed by a McGill Law graduate with experience in both private practice and the non-profit sector. The CDO Director, Officer and Coordinator work with, and for, B.C.L./LL.B., LL.M. and DCL students, providing information and counseling on planning and preparing for their legal careers.

What We Do

We facilitate recruitment and interview processes for a range of employers and actively develop relationships with potential and current employers, such as law firms, governments, international organizations and universities. Our services reflect the Faculty’s bilingual and bi-juridical nature and include developing opportunities in a multitude of areas of practice, across jurisdictions and across legal traditions.
