Career Services

The Career Services Office provides career planning and employment assistance to law students throughout their three years of law school. The office is staffed by two full-time professionals, who serve as the assistant dean and the assistant director/public interest coordinator. A third, full-time person, the career services coordinator, supports the work of the office.


In recent years, more than 96 percent of Indiana University law graduates have secured employment within the first six months after graduation. IU graduates are found in all 50 states, with the largest populations outside Indiana located in Illinois, California, Michigan, Florida, New York, Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Texas.

Student Support

The Career Services Office provides support to law students in selecting a career path and obtaining desired employment. Services include career counseling, job search training and programming, employer visits, job listing service, newsletters, employer databases, and a large resource collection.

The office expands students' knowledge of career opportunities through counseling and a series of seminars throughout the year. IU alumni and area attorneys play an integral role in the education of students on career options and successful job search strategies.

Job search training sessions include resumé critique workshops, interview strategies sessions, mock interviews, and networking discussions. Students also have access to a series of career and job search brochures available from the office.

Each year, employers nationwide contact Career Services directly to list more than 800 job opportunities, including a variety of summer, part-time, and full-time positions. In addition, the office identifies employment opportunities through employment newsletters and other sources. Students receive a biweekly newsletter featuring job listings and job search advice. A nationwide employer database containing contact information for more than 4,000 employers is also available to students. Career Services offers an extensive print resource collection, as well as computer access to various online and Internet-based resources.

Recruiting Programs

Career Services coordinates both on- and off-campus interviews to facilitate contact between students and employers. Every year during the fall and spring recruiting seasons, more than 100 employer representatives from Indiana, neighboring states, and major cities visit the school to recruit IU law students. Also in the fall, the office serves an additional 200 employers by collecting and forwarding resumés or listing employers who wish to hear from students directly. Information about all employers participating in fall recruiting is included in a detailed directory, which is available to students electronically and in hard copy. In addition, Career Services coordinates student participation at off-campus job fairs in Indiana and other locations.

The Bloomington area offers a variety of housing options for students. There are numerous apartments and houses available as off-campus rentals as well as on-campus university housing.

The university has campus housing facilities for both married and single students. The university's centers for single graduate students, Eigenmann and Weatherly Halls, provide both single and double rooms that are designed as comfortable quarters for study and relaxation. The centers have modern and efficient dining halls, libraries, floor and unit lounges, computers for student use, center recreation areas, snack bars and vending machines, duplicating and photocopying services, coin-operated laundries and ironing rooms, and luggage storage rooms. Room rates are approximately $3,693; meal plans begin at $2,400 during the academic year.

For married students, the university provides more than 1,450 efficiency apartments, as well as one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, both furnished and unfurnished. Housing rates vary from $490 to $891 per month during 2000-2001, including all utilities except telephone. All university housing for married students is located near public schools, places of worship, and shopping facilities. Those who prefer to live off campus will also find both furnished and unfurnished accommodations within walking distance of the university.

Although university housing facilities are extensive, it is not uncommon for the demand to exceed the supply. To ensure that appropriate space is reserved, applications for housing should be filed at the earliest possible date. Students should be aware that the academic year for the School of Law is longer than that for the university. Housing contracts may have to be modified to accommodate the longer housing needs of law students. Students interested in university housing should write to Indiana University Halls of Residence, Assignment Section, 801 North Jordan Avenue, Bloomington, IN 47405-2107.

Information on off-campus housing options is available on the Law School's Web site (www.law.indiana.edu) or can be obtained by contacting the Admissions Office.
