Law school takes three long years, a lot of work and a lot of money. With all that time, effort and expense, doesn’t it make sense to figure out the best way to use the law degree you earned?       Law Fit

 

The LawFit® Career Assessment and Personal Coaching was created for the specific purpose of helping you decide the best way to use your law degree.

The LawFit® Career Assessment is an online test that helps law students make better career decisions. In only 30 minutes, our assessment will help you define your best career path, both inside and outside the traditional practice of law. Our assessment is valid, accurate, reliable, and it is specifically designed for law students and graduates. But rather than just read the assessment results on your own, an experienced legal search expert will meet one-on-one with you to discuss your results and help create a concrete plan to find the jobs that fit you best.

In short, the LawFit® Career Assessment was created to help you find your calling.

Specifically, LawFit® will help you:

  • Explore specific practice areas and career options in an informed and a time-
    efficient manner
  • Conduct a more effective, focused job search through an action plan
  • Address your employment concerns and anxieties with a professional career counselor
  • Improve networking and interviewing skills by creating greater self-awareness
  • Work more productively with your law school career advisors

How Does It Work?

You will receive the LawFit® Career Assessment, plus individual coaching sessions with a Personal Career Coach (PCC).

What Students Are Saying

The Lawfit® Career Assessment was a very positive experience. I actually enjoyed taking it and the results were extremely accurate. It provided true value in helping me target my job search to a handful of practice areas that really fit me, and it also revealed some interesting aspects of my personality that I had not considered before."
Brandon Chapple
3L, University of Georgia School of Law

I thought it was brilliant! It was spot-on in terms of detecting my preference for entrepreneurship and sales. On the legal side, my best fit was a surprise, but when I thought about it – it would have been a perfect choice for me. I think this will be a great tool for prospective and existing lawyers."

Courtney Sapire
President of RFx Legal (former practicing attorney and SMU Law graduate)

The results were incredibly accurate. It reminded me of aspects of my personality I haven’t considered in a long time. And even though I was confident I already knew what I wanted to do with my degree, it’s helped me get focused on developing an actual strategy, and plan of action, for successfully pursuing that line of work."
