A growing number of our LL.M. alumni remain in South Florida or other parts of the United States after graduation. Students on F-1 visa status are entitled to a year of Optional Practical Training, during which time employment is authorized in the United States. The office of International Graduate Law Programs coordinates a large number of networking events during the course of the year to educate current students on the range of possibilities for employment.
The School of Law also tries to facilitate internships with the legal departments of multinational corporations based in South Florida. Area law firms host receptions each spring for the law students in the graduate programs. Alumni will regularly join the students for lunch meetings to discuss their experiences in the local job market. Although we cannot guarantee a job to every graduate, we do our very best to prepare all of our students for the employment market and to support each person in planning for a career of interest.
