Alumni Success and Career Services

The Career Development team works directly with the Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law administration and faculty to help students network and build connections in space law, cyber law or telecommunications. For more information on the services available to students visit College of Law Career Development. At the beginning of each academic year students may meet with Executive Director Magilton to start their career strategy plan. This includes a month-by-month checklist of how to best prepare yourself for the job market in this sector. Students also benefit from expert review of their cover letters and resumes, as well as an entire library of resources in our career services office.

As of June 2017, of our 52 LL.M. alumni, 48 are currently employed in JD required/preferred positions. 39 of those alumni are in space, cyber, and telecommunications fields or in positions they consider adjacent to that field/their studies here. So, roughly 80% of our LLM alumni are employed and in a position that they characterize as related to their work in the program.
To give you an idea of the different career sectors in the space and cyber realm, they range from private industry (launch providers, satellite manufactures, etc), to policy (State Dept, FAA, think tanks), to national security (military, civilians working for DoD, defense contractors). Telecommunications also opens a broader door, as more (larger) companies are already entrenched in that regulatory scheme.
We pride ourselves on our exclusive and impressive list of alumni. Their success speaks for itself. Check out the alumni spotlights below to see where a LL.M. in Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications can take you.
