Career Resources for Alumni
The CDO has access to job databases and research tools to help you with your job search.
Mizzou Law Job Bank: The Mizzou Law Job Bank, commonly referred to as SAGE, contains numerous job postings for attorneys in Missouri and nationwide. The postings are password protected and only accessible after you have activated an account. To activate an account, email the following information to Lesley Clark at email@example.com:
- Full name
- Name at the time you graduated if different
- Student ID
- MU Pawprint if you had one
- A phone number where we can reach you
- An email other than your Mizzou email
We will contact you once your account has been created with details on how to login.
CareerShift: CareerShift is a job search engine that compiles thousands of legal, quasi-legal and non-legal jobs nationwide. If you have any trouble registering or creating an account, please contact the CDO.
Access to Job Postings at Other Law Schools: Through a process referred to as ‘reciprocity’, we can make a request on your behalf for you to have access to job postings at another law school. This service is limited to law schools outside of Missouri. In addition, not all law schools provide this service, and most have restrictions on when and to whom it is provided. Please contact the CDO if you would like additional information..
Stay Connected: Our alumni are one of our most valuable resources and we want to hear from you.
Mizzou Law Professional Network: The CDO maintains a LinkedIn Group exclusively for law school students, alumni, faculty and staff. This is fantastic way to let you us know what you are doing, develop new contacts and stay in touch with the law school community.
Alumni Directory: Please update your contact and employment information in the law school’s online alumni directory. You can update your information online or by contacting the Office of Advancement at 573-882-4374.
Finally, please stop in and say hello if you are in Columbia or on campus. We always welcome a visit!
