College of LawCareer Services

The University of La Verne College of Law has a fully developed career assistance program.

Apply for Jobs

Our law school maintains a database of jobs and externship opportunities on the Law Employment Opportunities (LEO) website, which is an online program that streamlines and simplifies the job searching process for La Verne Law students and alumni.  With LEO, students can create their own online profile and upload their resume, writing samples, and transcripts for employers to view.  Employers have the opportunity to post job opportunities at no cost for our students and alumni to view and apply for.

Accessing Law Employment Opportunities

Accessing LEO is easy! Simply log in to the La Verne Portal, open a new web page and click on the LEO link.

After logging on, you can search for jobs by clicking on “OCI & Job Listings” on the left side of the webpage. For more information regarding LEO, please contact the Career Development Office.

Personal Marketing Package

Critical to landing any job is a personal marketing package. We can help build your resume, create cover letters, and assist with reviewing other application materials. Simply submit your Personal Marketing Package for review.

Counseling Sessions

You’re Invited to Schedule an Appointment Online – Law Verne Law Students and Alumni can conveniently schedule a one-on-one counseling session by using our online appointment calendar.  This eliminates time-consuming back-and-forth appointment scheduling over email!  Please note: We still have walk-in office hours from 9:30 am – 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday, but drop-ins are limited to 10 minute sessions and are subject to the availability of a counselor.  If you do not see a convenient time on our online calendar, you are encouraged to email the Career Development Office at lawcareers@laverne.edu— we will try to accommodate your schedule, even if it means an evening or weekend appointment.

To book and appointment, log in to LEO and click on “Appointments” on the left side of the page.  Remember, you must be logged in to the La Verne Portal in order to log in to LEO.
