Center for Co-op and Career Development (CCCD): Welcome

A guide to recommended books, databases, websites and more to help you with career planning, co-op preparation and professional advancement.

Introduction

This research guide highlights law library material intended to help you succeed at every step on your career path, from finding a job to thriving in your position. 

For general career information, you will want to look at books from the law library's CCOPA Collection. While we have many books on job hunting, we also have resources that will help you take a more holistic view on your career arc. 

For students looking for more targeted information on a career area, there are Pathways Cohort Guides. There are separate guides for working in private firms, including businesses, government, including those doing criminal work, the judiciary, and the public interest.

Finally, the tab on Ethics Research links you to the law library's comprehensive legal ethics research guide, which students are first introduced to at Pathways.

Note: If you want to look at Symplicity, follow this link: https://law-neu-csm.symplicity.com/students/.
