The Career Development Office is pleased to invite all three classes to attend the 7th Annual JD Pathways career conference on January 12, 2018. This day-long, conference-style event is designed to educate and inspire Colorado Law students about their career options.

JD Pathways will begin at 8:30 AM on January 12, the Friday before spring classes begin. A tentative agenda is below. Students MUST RSVP via CDOnline to participate in any portion of JD Pathways. Attorneys and alumni more than one year out who are interested in attending should contact Asst. Dean Todd Rogers for more information.

Mock interviews will be scheduled in the CDO interview rooms and other rooms in the Wolf Law Building throughout the day. Students will interview with an attorney for 20 minutes, and will receive 10 minutes of live feedback. To the extent we have cameras available, interviews will be taped so you can review the footage and receive additional feedback at a later date from the CDO. To participate in a mock interview, simply RSVP for one of the "JD Pathways Mock Interview Sessions" in the Events section of CDOnline. All those who RSVP will be given additional information on mock interview registration.

A Strong Interest Inventory assessment will also be available from 10:00 - 10:50 a.m. The Strong Interest Inventory assessment is one of the world's most widely respected and frequently used career planning tools and this session will extend the inventory to legal and law-related careers. Participants need to complete a 20-minute, online assessment before the session. To participate in the Strong Interest Inventory assessment, email Annie Fogleman with your intent to participate. This will be on a first come, first served basis. This session will be capped at 10 students.
