The Career Planning Center offers a number of programs to support all of Fordham Law's J.D. students, including:
- CPC Job Bank (Symplicity login required), which is searchable by position type. The job bank has two types of position, law firm scholarships and fellowships, that may be of particular interest to diverse students.
- CPC Recruitment Programs, which take place on campus.
In addition, the CPC markets to J.D. students a series of job fairs nationwide, many of which are diversity job fairs held across the country. These job fairs generally include both private and public sector employers looking to hire students for summer and permanent positions and are for J.D. students who have completed at least one full year of law school, although some fairs are open to first-year day and second-year evening J.D. students.
The CPC manages Fordham Law's participation in the New York City Bar Association Diversity Fellowship Program. It coordinates with an internal selection committee of administrators and faculty to identify and select candidates to promote to the City Bar for consideration. The fellowship is open to first-year day and second-year evening J.D. students. Those selected as fellows through the program are given the opportunity to work in law firms, corporate legal departments, and select government agencies during the summer.
In Spring 2017, CPC will present in its the "Navigating Your Journey" series two panel discussions on topics of interest to first-generation and diverse J.D. students.
