Welcome to the Lincoln Alexander School of Law’s Career Development & Professional Placement Office (CDPPO). 

We work closely with law students to explore career options, secure professional placements, and successfully navigate their law school journey.

Throughout the academic year, we host professional development events, share resources, and offer mentoring to assist students with their career exploration including job applications, interviewing and networking.

CDPPO Portal

To access the services and resources offered, we encourage you to register on the CDPPO Portal. The Portal will allow you to:

  • complete your personal profile
  • register for professional development events
  • explore career development resources
  • review job opportunities
  • register for on-campus hiring, and more!

Students are encouraged to visit the CDPPO Portal early and often and to book appointments with our staff for application reviews, one-to-one coaching, and mock interviews. 

As a Lincoln Alexander Law student, we're here to help you secure a diverse range of professional opportunities and thrive in your desired paths to practice.
