Network: Use the West Legal Directory via Westlaw or Martindale Hubbell via LexisNexis or Martindale.com to find Suffolk grads, or graduates of your undergraduate school who are practicing law in your area of interest, in the city where you'd like to practice. Contact the Career Development Office to access the Alumni Career Network database and contact Suffolk Law grads who are practicing in your area of interest and have volunteered to talk to Suffolk law students and recent graduates.
Gather background Info: In a competitive job market doing your homework before you interview is vital. Check to see if the attorney you're interviewing with wrote any law review or bar journal articles, was mentioned in general and legal newspapers or was the attorney of note in any cases; find opinions written by a judge you want to land a clerkship with; and check SEC filings and company profiles on Westlaw & LexisNexis.
