U of T graduates typically enjoy the highest placement rates of all Ontario law schools and are sought after nationally and internationally by law firms, government and not-for-profit organizations.  The Career Development Office offers a number of services to alumni who are seeking new positions, making career transitions, or exploring ways to become involved with the faculty.

Career Services

If you are a graduate looking for a new position, making a career transition, or looking to get involved with the faculty, the CDO can help. We offer a number of services to alumni including access to the password protected, online employer database and alumni job bank, University of Toronto Law Career Network (UTLC).

As alumni you may attend programs that are designed for alumni seeking employment or undergoing a career transition.  If you have graduated within the last two years, you are also entitled to meet with a Career Counsellor to discuss your career plans and objectives. Due to the CDO’s need to provide exceptional service to current students, alumni may only be permitted to book an appointment outside of critical time periods (including August – mid-November and January – March) and may be limited to one appointment per term.

Alumni also have unlimited access to the CDO’s online resources through UTLC regardless of their year of graduation. This includes print resources, recorded sessions and alumni-related job postings.

If you are a recent graduate and would like to schedule an in-person or telephone appointment, or require a password for UTLC, please contact the CDO  at cdo.law@utoronto.ca.  Please include the year you graduated from the law school in your e-mail.

Getting Involved:  Alumni Opportunities

Our students represent a remarkable mix of backgrounds, experiences and intellectual interests whose undergraduate degrees cover every major discipline.  The employment and other experiences of our incoming class are equally diverse and include musicians, finance professionals, dancers, medical professionals, athletes, teachers and chefs.  Our alumni are no less varied in their post-graduation pursuits.  The success of the CDO and our students is bolstered by the involvement of our alumni who maintain a relationship with the Faculty as mentors, employers and participants in the seminars, workshops, and networking events we host.

If you are interested in employing a graduateserving as a student mentor or participating in a CDO program,  please contact the CDO  at cdo.law@utoronto.ca.
