Exploring Law Careers

Practice areas of the law are almost endless. If you have something you are passionate about, there is likely an area of law that would go hand-in-hand with that passion.

The Career Development Office is dedicated to providing programming that helps all students explore different areas of the law as well as employers, both traditional and alternative. The more you know about yourself and about practice area options the more successful you will be in seeking out and securing a fulfilling career. Self-Assessment is a critical part of the career exploration process. Below are a number of tabs that will help you start exploring options but don’t forget that an individual meeting is always in order to help bounce your ideas off someone else. The pages in this section of the website will help you start to explore the myriad of options before you.


Welcome to the 2017-18 edition of Chambers Associate! Read all the insider perspectives from BigLaw associates. 

Although the Chambers Guide is a wonderful resource for the world’s  largest firms, if you are looking to identify small to mid-size firms in Nebraska or other legal employers, your best bet is to conduct a search in the Nebraska Law Career Portal Employer Database. You can search  by the type of employer as well as the location and/or practice area. As always, if you have questions about anything, stop by the CDO or make an appointment to speak with Kala or Tasha!
