Welcome to the Office of Career Planning (OCP) and the Winter 2021 semester!  Given current conditions our office is planning on operating remotely for the entire term, but we are still here to support students and graduates as they explore career opportunities while also helping employers connect with Michigan Law.


The OCP virtual lobby will be open Summer 2021 on Monday-Friday from 12:30-3:30pm Eastern Time.  You can access the virtual lobby here ( If you have an urgent question and the lobby is closed, please email


All OCP counselor appointments are be conducted virtually.  Each counselor has a Zoom link that will serve as their virtual office.  At your scheduled appointment time please use the appropriate Zoom information that has accompanied your appointment reminder.  If you can't find that email, please check the Staff Bios for their office link.  If you are logging in before your appointment, you will enter a waiting room where you will be until your appointment starts.  

Please remember that you can call into a Zoom meeting if you are unable/don't want to connect via video conference.  The waiting room function works if you call in as well, but please note there is no hold music or other prompts while you wait.


Unfortunately, we will not be able to physically host employers on campus, but we are happy to connect with employers to host virtual events or to discuss recruiting/interviewing events.  If you are interested in recruiting or interviewing at Michigan Law, please email Shannon Delecki, Manager of Recruitment Programs, at
