Since our inception as Springfield-Northeastern in 1919, which subsequently became Western New England University, local and national employers have actively recruited students and graduates from our School of Law. Private law firms, government agencies, corporations, small businesses, and other public and private organizations find the office to be a valuable resource in the search for qualified legal professionals.

On-Campus Interviews and Resume Collections
Beginning in late August and continuing throughout the year, Career Services arranges on-campus interviews for you with second-, third-, and fourth-year students. In addition, you may schedule interviews with first-year students beginning in January of their second semester. On-campus interviews provide an excellent opportunity to meet with and identify individuals whose academic achievements, legal interests, and practical skills are compatible with your organization. If you are unable or prefer not to perform on-campus interviews, we can collect and forward resumes to you or have interested students apply directly to you.
Employer Panels and Information Sessions
At any time throughout the academic year, you are welcome to participate in panel presentations and individual information sessions. Sponsored by Career Services, both programs provide timely forums for meeting with students and recent graduates to discuss immediate and upcoming employment opportunities within your organization. As a member of a panel, you will join other local and national employers from industries and legal backgrounds similar to yours, creating additional opportunities to address broader issues such as industry trends, current hiring practices, and other related topics. Individual information sessions offer a more intimate setting, providing the chance to speak specifically about your organization and to interact with participants on a more personal level. To find out more about these programs, call 413-782-1416.
