Office of Career & Professional Development


Welcome to the Office of Career & Professional Development (OCPD) at the American University Washington College of Law. It is our mission to educate students and alumni about workplace professionalism and the diverse range of career opportunities available to those with a legal education. Our office is committed to providing the highest quality of service through individual career counseling, specialized programming, and extensive resources. Most importantly, we assist our students and alumni in achieving career satisfaction through self-assessment, exploration, and the development of effective job-search strategies.

OCPD sponsors a variety of recruitment programs and other events to facilitate interaction between students and employers. We share the benefits of hiring our students and alumni by communicating with employers from across the country in both the private and public sectors.
