Susan Guindi, assistant dean of the Office of Career Planning, knows firsthand the career opportunities available for law school graduates. She clerked for two Michigan Supreme Court justices and then practiced law in Washington, D.C., with both a large firm (180 attorneys) litigating civil and criminal matters, and a smaller firm (20 attorneys) litigating and arbitrating civil matters. Guindi returned to the University of Michigan Law School in 1995 as the associate director of the Office of Public Service, was named director for the Office of Career Services in 1998, and appointed assistant dean in 2001.
Under Guindi's guidance, the office provides a comprehensive program of career services for students and alumni that includes career counseling and education, informational programs, and a large on-campus recruiting program.
Guindi attended Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, before transferring to the University of Michigan, where she completed a BA with Distinction. She graduated from Michigan Law School with her JD, magna cum laude and Order of the Coif, and served as a contributing editor of the Michigan Law Review.
In addition to her Law School activities, Guindi served as chair of the Public Service Committee of the National Association for Law Placement from 1998-1999. She is a member of both the California and Michigan Bars.
