Calling on USD School of Law Alumni to #HireUSDLaw


SAN DIEGO (April 23, 2020) – University of San Diego (USD) School of Law is busier than ever educating students via remote teaching, advising them on academic and career matters, presenting online programs, and implementing a variety of plans to help students impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. We are asking for alumni assistance with our efforts.

Many of our current 1L and 2L students had secured coveted summer positions with law firms, public agencies, and legal non-profit organizations. As a result of the pandemic, a number of summer programs have been cancelled and summer job offers rescinded. At the same time, our graduating class faces an uncertain job market as they continue to search for post-grad employment. USD Law alumni have always been a great source of hiring and referrals for USD Law students and recent graduates, and we especially need your help at this critical time.

Could your law firm or company hire a student to perform legal research or draft legal documents this summer? Students are open to hourly project work, remote work or any other work arrangement that would allow them to gain experience and earn needed income at this time. If you work for a legal nonprofit or government agency, can you hire students to work with you this summer for academic credit or on a volunteer basis? If you are not able to personally hire any students for summer or for post-grad positions at this time, we’d ask you to reach out to your networks and let us know of any opportunities or leads you might identify.

Please email Assistant Dean Molly Wescott or Marti Worms in the Office of Career and Professional Development to share potential opportunities, post a position, or learn more about our employer outreach efforts. We welcome your input and assistance especially during these uncertain times. And please remember–it’s always a good time to #HireUSDLaw.
