What services are offered by the Career Services Office?


Career Services

At ASL, we take a tailored approach to career services: The Director of Career Services gets to know our students and alumni individually and advises them one-on-one and in small groups regarding their career aspirations and plans for success.

The Director also facilitates attendance at job fairs, coordinates applications for judicial clerkships, provides programming on career-related topics, organizes resume collections for potential employers, and guides regular resume workshops where students write and edit their resumes together in a collaborative, supportive environment.

Professional development is also built into the skills curriculum at ASL. For example, a segment of Legal Process II, taken in the second semester of the first year, is dedicated to training students to treat their employment application materials as further opportunities to engage in professional, persuasive argument. Our students are highly talented, and we teach them the tools for explaining how their talents match the needs of various employers.

Career Services also maintains a Facebook page where students, alumni, and Career Services staff come together to share employment opportunities, network, and promote professional development. Students and alumni can access the Career Services Facebook page here.

Students, alumni, and members of the public can find information about ASL's recent employment outcomes here: 2015, 2014 and 2013.

Per ABA Standard 205(d), Appalachian School of Law expects that all employers will observe principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age and disability in regard to hiring, promotion, retention and conditions of employment.
