Florida State / College of Law / Placement Office / Career Development Handbook

Career Development Handbook

This Career Development Handbook is designed to provide an introduction to the many services provided by the Placement Office at Florida State University College of Law. It is intended to be a collection of information to assist you with the many phases of a job search. This handbook is available in alternate formats; please contact the Placement Office for more information.

The Placement Office staff is here to assist you as you make your way through law school and beyond.  Our mission is to provide law students with the tools they will need to facilitate successful job searches and connect with employers. 

The Placement Office has been extremely effective. Within nine months of graduation, 89.2% of the Class of 2012 was employed, with an additional 3.15% pursuing further graduate studies. This success is attributed to the networking activities hosted by the office, the school's active alumni, and the office's diligent efforts to track graduates which include exit interviews and visits to the Florida Bar Examination site every February and July.
