Lawcountability, J.D.

As more law students compete for fewer jobs, our career services team is committed to helping each of you find more dynamic ways to stand out. But, simultaneously attending classes, networking, following up on career leads, strategically managing social media, and generally raising your profile can be overwhelming. To give you a significant advantage in your job search and career development, we are pleased to offer you access to Lawcountability,J.D., a powerful technology platform that will make it easier for you to achieve more in less time by offering:

On-demand programs that show you how to connect with the people you are trying to meet rather than collect random business cards.

Automated e-mail reminders to help you execute your goals.

The ability to identify your objectives and fit them into your busy schedule.

A unique game-like point system to measure your performance and compare it to your peers.

You are not required to participate, but those who do will be eligible to win prizes on a weekly, monthly, semester, and academic year basis. In fact, the students who consistently use and apply the system, as well as discuss their efforts on social media, throughout the academic year could win a full bar review scholarship from Barbri (valued at over $2,000)*. Learn more in this video –  https://vimeo.com/139815282

And, the best part of this approach is that you could see results by committing just ten minutes a week. It is open to all Duquesne Law students.

We hope you’ll take advantage of this tool that will help you achieve your career goals.   Please contact Maria Comas (comas@duq.edu) with any questions.

 

*Students who have secured employment with law firms or other organizations that will be paying the cost of their bar review course are ineligible to receive one of the four BARBRI scholarship
