Pathways to Professional Success

Pathways to Professional Success is an online advising system to assist you as you plan your professional pathway during your time at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. We are committed to helping you plan a legal education that will suit your professional needs and interests.

Pathways to Professional Success introduces you to our substantive areas of concentration — all of which will offer you an intellectually rigorous educational experience and professional opportunities to put theory into practice — and provides the information you need to acquire the educational foundation and practical training for a successful career in the field you wish to pursue.

We also encourage you to reach out to the faculty in the field and to the Office of Student Affairs and the Office of Career Services for further assistance.

For those of you who are interested in other fields beyond our concentrations or who have not yet determined how you want to use your law degree, we encourage you to reach out to your faculty advisor or a counselor in the Office of Student Affairs, either of whom can provide you with one-on-one academic counseling and information about extracurricular activities.

You can also schedule an appointment with a career counselor in the Office of Career Services to discuss employment opportunities, and you can find out about relevant capstone experiences — clinics, externships or pro bono opportunities — by visiting our Office of Clinical Programs or our director of Pro Bono and Externship Programs.
