In these unsettled—and unsettling—times, it's helpful to be part of a community that offers valuable expertise. So we'd like to remind you that, as a graduate and lifetime member of the Michigan Law School community, you have access to the many
resources of our Office of Career Planning (OCP).
We offer individual appointments, during which we review the employment landscape, give advice on resume and cover letter presentation, provide preparation for interviews, tell you about more resources for finding employment, and provide any other information that may be helpful to you as you consider your career options. If you are contemplating a change of employer, job market, or even career path, you may call OCP to schedule an appointment via telephone. To make an appointment, call OCP at
