The mission of the Office of Career and Professional Development is to give Indiana Law students the tools you need to maximize your marketability and success. Here's how we help.

  • We work individually with you on a customized career development plan
  • We connect you to career opportunities through alumni, special guests, and employers
  • We help you refine your resumes and cover letters, improve your interview skills, and build your personal and professional network
  • We provide Symplicity: a one-stop career information management tool

More than half of our graduates find careers outside of Indiana, working in all 50 states and in more than 30 countries. The majority of our graduates outside Indiana work in Illinois, California, Michigan, Florida, Washington, D.C., Ohio, New York, and Texas.

If you are a law student from another school who is visiting Indiana Law, we will make many of our resources available to you. Read more about our reciprocity policy.

Nondiscrimination Policy

Indiana University Maurer School of Law is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in recruiting and employment regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, race or ethnic orientation.   Law School facilities are open only to employers whose practices support this policy.  A sole exception to the nondiscrimination policy is granted to representatives of the U.S. military uniformed services.  Under threat of loss of funding to the University, this exception will be in effect while the April 1997 DoD Interim regulations implementing the military recruiting provisions of the Omnibus Funding Bill of 1997 and the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 1996 and 1995 are in force.
