The Office of Career Services provides a number of services that are available to graduates to assist them with developing and achieving their career goals.
The Office of Career Services now uses Symplicity for all job postings and other online career information. Current students and alumni may access more than 1,500 job listings annually from the convenience of their own home. To access Symplicity, please visit here to register and/or create your profile.
The law school is excited to announce the launch of our new professional network. “ProNet” is a way for alumni to connect and keep in touch with one another. It is also designed to assist current law students in learning from experienced practitioners about career options and opportunities, as well as an array of other career and practice-related information that is critical to an effective job search. ProNet is intended for informational and networking purposes only. To register, click here.

Loan Repayment Assistance Program
Rutgers School of Law–Newark established a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) for graduates who make a long-term commitment to public interest employment. It is intended to support and increase the number of our graduates serving the public sector and the people and causes traditionally under-represented by the bar.
The LRAP is available for all Rutgers Law School–Newark graduates from the class of 1997 and forward who are employed in law-related public interest positions, and whose income does not exceed maximum levels established by the LRAP Board. The LRAP Board's current policy is to ensure that each applicant who qualifies receives a proportionate share of the LRAP funds available for disbursement. For more information, contact LRAP administrator Nicky Fornoratto.
If you are looking for a job in another geographic area, we can make a request on your behalf to obtain access to the career services office of another law school in that part of the country. Many law schools post information about their respective reciprocity policy on their website. Please check potential schools’ sites when making a decision as to which law school you wish to utilize.
If you are interested in receiving reciprocity from another law school to help in your job search, please contact Wendi Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include the name and contact information, including email address, of the person to whom the reciprocity request should be sent.
To request additional information about any of the above items, please send an email message that includes your name (also indicate name at time of graduation, if different), year of graduation, degree received, and mailing address, to email@example.com.
