  1. You can view and make appointments 21 days in advance, so please check again the next day for more slots.
  2. The 12twenty Appointments module is for current students and the most recent graduating class, others can book appointments by emailing Career Services.
  3. Refer to our guide or video for instructions on booking appointments and protocols regarding your resume/cover letter review.

1L Students: In order to allow time to adjust to your course load, and in keeping with common law school practice, our office does not meet with 1Ls until mid-September - this includes drop-ins and document reviews. We will schedule your initial appointment after our introductory info session. You will have access to make appointments through 12twenty once all the initial 1L appointments with our office have been completed. There will be plenty of time and assistance to guide you.
