CAREERS

Graduating with a University of Wollongong Law degree provides students with potentially unlimited career opportunities, be it a legal career or a non-legal career. The UOW LSS Careers Portfolio aims to inform students of the various career opportunities available to law graduates and provides assistance with applications for internships, clerkships and graduate programs.

Throughout the year the Careers portfolio will provide a number of career initiatives and events to assist students in finding, applying for, and following career aspirations.

Among these events is the 2021 UOW LSS Careers Fair which will highlight a myriad of career opportunities available to UOW law students and graduates. In addition to the Careers Fair the UOW LSS Clerkship Support Scheme will prepare current students with resume building and skills workshops which transcend past Clerkship time and can assist with a variety of graduate positions.

The Careers portfolio will also work with the Publications portfolio to produce the annual Clerkship Guide, the Careers Guide and various other career related publications throughout the year.

For more information about programs under the Careers portfolio, contact Marie Russo at careers@uowlss.net.

My name is Marie Russo (she/her) and I am your UOWLSS Vice President (Careers) for 2021. I am currently completing my fourth year of my double degree – Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Italian). This year, I am supported by Caitlin Mills and Romel Tallow, your Careers Officers.

My role at the LSS entails providing our Law students with opportunities to understand the diverse careers and available pathways associated with having a Law degree. Like past years, I will be responsible for overseeing the Clerkship Guide, organising the Careers Fair, facilitating several workshops and releasing a series of helpful resources.

It is my ambition to see our Law students learn about how the legal industry has changed since the pandemic and preparing them for the future of law. If you have any suggestions or feedback regarding the Careers Portfolio, please feel free to send me an email and I will do my best to accommodate your request.

I look forward to working with you and helping make 2021 another successful year for the LSS.
