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:

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.  Please see the ProNet Information Sheet (PDF, 207KB) for more details. 
Shadow Program  
The Shadow Program gives 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.  Please see the Shadow Program Information Sheet (PDF, 114KB) for more details.  
Careers Day 
Careers Day is our annual career exploration event. Throughout the day we offer panels, one- on-one coffee chats, and networking events. This is a great opportunity to meet a wide variety of students and provide them with the benefit of your experience. 
Career Panels 
Our office, often in conjunction with student clubs, hosts a number of career panels each year to provide students with information about career options in specific fields or geographical locations. We are always looking for alumni who are interested in taking part. 
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.
