“JD-advantage” legal careers are positions defined as law-related careers where a law license is not required, but a law degree is a considerable asset. These careers exist across all industries and are typically reserved for individuals who have some sort of advanced training. Examples of positions for which a JD is an advantage include jobs in personnel or human resources, investment banking, consulting, compliance, law firm professional development, and law school administrative offices.
The University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) has decided to capitalize on this growing legal market trend and establish a recruiting event specifically geared towards these non-traditional, law-related employment opportunities. The JD-Advantage Career Table Talk (JDATT) invites employers to campus to speak to UHLC students and recent graduates about their organization and the opportunities they have for law students or graduates looking to embark on a non-traditional legal career.
Who Can Participate in JD-Advantage Career Table Talk?
The JDATT is open to all current UHLC 2L and 3L students as well as recent graduates. Employers participating in the JDATT will be sharing knowledge with students about their industry and the types of non-traditional, law-related roles usually found in it. Additionally, employers will be informing students and recent graduates of ways to secure permanent or internship positions with their organization.
