The Career Development Office team supports the professional development of students at Queen’s Law. We provide professional, relevant and timely services to help our students make informed career decisions and to ensure employers consider Queen’s Law when hiring summer and articling students.

Our alumni play an important role in our work, and there are many ways you can assist our students and the Career Development Office:QL Mentorship Opportunities

 

Professional Network (ProNet)  
ProNet is a secure online system only accessible by Queen’s Law students.  It is designed to help law students learn from experienced practitioners about career options through informational interviews by phone or email or in-person. 
 
Shadow Program  
The Shadow Program gives first-year students a unique opportunity to observe the day-to-day work of a lawyer.  Each student is matched with a Queen's Law alumnus based on the host’s location and area of practice.

3Link
The 3Link Mentorship Program will connect third-year Queen's Law students who are actively seeking articling opportunities with alumni mentors.  Approximately 25% of students enter their third year of law school actively seeking articles.  The Career Development Office has found that students have better success with their job search if they can find mentors who are tapped into the legal community.  The aim of this program is to find meaningful mentorships for these students and help to build and strengthen their contract base as young professionals.
 
Career Development Events
The Career Development Office hosts a number of events throughout the year that provide students with opportunities to meet alumni and other respresentatives from a wide range of employers in varying geographical locations. 
 
Job Opportunities 
We rely on our alumni network to alert us to potential articling or summer jobs for Queen’s Law students. If you know of an opportunity, please let us know, or complete this form.
