Information for Prospective Students
At the University of Washington School of Law, we have two separate centers to help students make connections with local attorneys and attain their professional goals.
The Center for Professional Leadership and Development (CPLD)
provides individualized coaching to students seeking careers in private
law firms, the corporate sector, government agencies and judicial clerkships.
The career coaches consist of a team of four professionals, including three
attorneys and a seasoned recruiting professional. The CPLD team collectively has over 60
years of experience in the practice of law and the field of legal recruiting.
