Here are a few starting points for your job search. In addition to these resources, all GW Law students are encouraged to meet with a career counselor to develop an individualized job search strategy.
The Career Center uses CORE to manage recruitment programs, events, and job listings. Over 13,000 jobs were posted in CORE just last year for GW Law students and alumni. Create a "Search Alert" to receive email notifications when new job postings match your preferences.
CORE uses single sign-on (SSO) to link directly to your GW Law Google account. If you receive an error message when attempting to log in, it may be because are logged into a personal (non-GW Law) Google account. Please try logging out of your personal Google account or launching CORE in a separate browser.
Job listings in the PSJD database include internships (fall, spring, and summer), postgraduate fellowships, and a wide variety of permanent positions. PSJD also includes over 13,000 organizational profiles for nonprofit, government, and other public interest employers spanning the globe.
- Use the “Resource Center” to learn more about career paths in criminal law, government, and public interest.
