What some law schools are doing to help grads find jobs

The Minnesota Lawyer is reporting the measures four schools in that state are taking to help current students maintain morale and help recent grads find jobs.

Among the strategies:

1.  School funded, post-JD fellowships for graduates who haven't found jobs yet.

2.   Peer support groups to help students cope with the stress of finding a job.

3.  Purchasing tables at professional functions to help students network for jobs.

4. Encouraging students to think more creatively about what they can do with a law degree.

This is a start.  Please tell us in the comments below what your school is doing to help students find jobs.
