“I chose to attend Notre Dame Law School because I believe my career path embodied what it meant to be a ‘Different Kind of Lawyer.’”
Veronica Canton, '18 J.D.
President of the Hispanic National Bar Association Law Student Division
“To say I’ve enjoyed my law school experience is an understatement, and I’m elated to represent Notre Dame Law School in these endeavors.”
Go Anywhere With An NDLS Degree
Notre Dame Law School is truly a national law school. In fact, recent employment data from the American Bar Association suggest that our alumni are more widely dispersed than those from any other law school. The top three states where Notre Dame Law graduates are employed – Illinois, California, and New York – extend from coast to coast. This geographic diversity benefits students as they connect with an alumni network and opportunities that stretch across the map.
One of the benefits of earning a degree from Notre Dame Law School is that graduates become members of one of the world’s most vibrant alumni communities. Notre Dame Lawyers connect with each other throughout the year at events on campus and through Notre Dame Lawyer Committees that are active in more than 30 major cities across the country. These loyal alumni are eager to assist students and new graduates with networking and mentorship as they start their careers.
The Law School’s Career Development Office is staffed with experienced lawyers who are dedicated to helping students achieve their professional goals. From offering one-on-one advising and resume feedback to coordinating interview programs and networking opportunities, the CDO provides a full slate of services to assist students as they advance on their career paths.
Support For Public Interest Careers
Notre Dame Law School encourages students to pursue legal careers where they can make important contributions to the world, even if those positions are in fields that pay lower salaries. The Law School offers a generous Loan Repayment Assistance Program and a multitude of fellowships and stipend programs to ensure that financial concerns do not prevent students from entering careers in public interest law and public service.
