Career Services for Alumni
Welcome Pepperdine University School of Law Alumni. The Career Development Office (CDO) office is here to assist you with your job search.
We are available throughout the year for one-on-one counseling sessions. We will point you towards useful resources, review your resume, and work with you to develop a job hunt strategy.
Online Alumni Job Postings (JDConnect/Symplicity)
Each month, we receive numerous job announcements from public and private sector employers nationwide who are looking for Pepperdine alumni. These jobs are entered into our online database as we receive them. The site is password protected, so please contact our office at (310) 506-4634 for the ID and password.
The library in our office may be used by alumni. We have numerous books on job hunting, practice areas, and alternative careers.
Use of Career Services Offices at Other Law Schools (Reciprocity)
If you have moved away and would like access to another law school's career resources, we will send a letter to that school requesting for reciprocity. Note: Reciprocity is often unavailable during the fall recruiting season.
Online Alumni Directory
Your fellow alumni can be fantastic resources to learn more about specific practice areas, geographic markets, or even alternative careers. Connect with your classmates and others through our online Alumni Directory.
In this unique virtual community, Pepperdine alumni, faculty, staff, and parents have made themselves available to offer the exact resources you're looking for in one convenient location.

Please feel free to use all the research tools that are available to our current students or contact us with any additional questions you may have.
Alumni Getting Involved
Pepperdine's greatest career resources are its alumni. Students are eager to learn more about particular practice areas and markets and alumni are a great resource for these students. If you are interested in getting involved please contact our office at 310.506.4634. Below is a list of just a few ways in which you can get involved:
Hire a Pepperdine Student
If you have a legal position, whether for summer, school-term or post-graduate, attend our on-campus recruiting programs or post the position online to our students and alumni. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to post a job.
Volunteer to Conduct Mock Interviews
Alumni are always needed to return to Pepperdine to give students feedback on their interview skills. If you are interested, contact our office at (310) 506.4634.
Participate on Career Panels
Throughout the year, CDO schedules panels and presentations on a variety of practice areas and career-related issues and we are always looking for alumni to share their expertise and unique perspectives. The panels vary from year to year, but if you have particular areas of focus and would be willing to speak, please contact our office at (310) 506.4634.
