Throughout the academic year UCLA LL.M. students benefit from a variety of services provided by the Office of Career Services (OCS) including: individual career counseling appointments, guest speaker sessions, career-planning seminars, workshops on sharpening job search skills, and access both to the West Coast International LL.M. Job Fair hosted by UCLA and to New York University’s International Student Interview Program. UCLA LL.M. students are encouraged to take advantage of all the services and resources available to them through OCS and visit OCS whenever necessary.
