Virginia Law graduates have a wide range of career options, including positions in the private sector, government agencies, and public interest organizations. The Office of Career Services assists students with their career search by providing services such as resume preparation assistance, interview tips and callback procedures, listings of available job postings and arranging on-campus interviews. Virginia Law historically has had a significant number of its students work as clerks for federal and state court judges, and this trend has increased in recent years. Indeed, in 2009 UVA had 80 students and graduates serving as judicial clerks, including 4 actively serving as Supreme Court clerks. To meet this rising demand, Virginia Law established an independent Office of Judicial Clerkships to act as a one-stop-shop for all things related to judicial clerkships.

Finally, the school has an “Academic Placement Committee, which assists UVA students and graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in law school teaching.” (Virginia Law Website)
