Career Services Office

Our mission is to empower, educate and assist students and alumni, through information sharing and skills training, in the job search and continued career development.

Overview of Services Heading link

UIC Law has a full-service, professional Career Services Office (CSO) open to all students. We provide a wide array of services ranging from career planning advice to electronic resources accessible from anywhere in the world. All students receive access to Symplicity, our web-based career services system, where they can access online job listings and other resources. We also offer a series of career development workshops.

We are committed to helping you in your job search and career development. Recruiting and hiring practices require that career development be an ongoing process. However, a job search requires the active participation of the student. You can start by familiarizing yourself with the resources and services provided by the CSO. Also, we hope that you will utilize the full range of services offered by the law school, especially those provided by the center of your particular field.

Services Available to Students Heading link

Mock Interviews

The CSO offers students the opportunity to practice interview skills through a “mock interview.” The counselor will provide feedback, so that you will perform at your best in an actual interview.

The CSO library

The CSO library has a wealth of information on a variety of topics relating to your career search, including general career search information, legal job search resources, specialty practice area information, employer recruiting materials, public sector resources, and legal news publications. We encourage you to spend some time browsing through our resources.

Office Equipment

Two computers and a stand-alone printer are available in the Career Services Office. Students may use these to research employers, locate UIC Law graduates, and print resumes, cover letters, and other job search correspondence.

A fax machine and copy machine/scanner are free to students and alumni using the office for job-related purposes.


Symplicity is the Career Services Office’s online resource center, which provides 24-hour access to a wide range of CSO resources and job postings.
