Career Services


The Career Services Office is an important resource for our students. Our goal is to educate and empower students in their professional development and to assist them during each phase of the career-search process. Our individualized and proactive approach is geared toward helping students identify and obtain meaningful professional and practical experience that is well suited to their interests and skills. An Ave Maria legal education provides a strong foundation for any number of career goals. We help students prepare for their careers with a commitment to the highest ethical and moral standards by making choices consistent with that commitment.
