Need help finding a job lead?

Employers not only contact us about students, they often seek our assistance in the hiring of law school graduates. Alumni are welcome to use our web-based jobs board, found on the Career Planning Manager (CPM). To register for the CPM, simply send an email to Patrick Mellon (patrick.mellon@temple.edu) or contact him at 215-204-8806 and he will initiate an account for you.

Hiring a Temple Law Alumnus or Student?

Need to hire an intern or lawyer? We are (more than) happy to post jobs you may have in your firm or organization. Send your job posting to Patrick Mellon (patrick.mellon@temple.edu)  and we will get it on to the CPM. Alternatively, if your need is highly specialized, time sensitive, or you’d just prefer to talk it over with someone before creating the job posting, call any one of the counselors listed above.
