A Note of Appreciation to Employers Amid the COVID-19 Crisis
On behalf of Miami Law, Dean Anthony E. Varona and the Career Development Office would like to show our appreciation to the judiciary, local, state and federal government agencies, corporations, law firms, public interest entities, and all other organizations both far and near - that hired our students this summer amid the COVID-19 crisis. We are especially grateful to our alumni who were able to create unique employment and learning experiences for our students. The opportunity for our students to gain practical legal experience and to develop their professional skills is an integral part of their legal education. With the limitations imposed by the pandemic, we are thankful for all of the organizations that were able to restructure their summer programs to accommodate the current remote working environment and to give our students the ability to gain professional experience. We realize that this was a challenging undertaking! We are so appreciative of your continued support of Miami Law and our students. From us to you, a heartfelt thank you!
The Career Development Office (CDO) welcomes employers to recruit students and alumni for school year, summer and post-graduate positions. The CDO utilizes a variety of services in order to assist employers in meeting their recruiting needs.

Volunteer: Become a Coffee Connector
In 2013, alumnus Jaret L. Davis, JD ’99, introduced the Coffee Connectors Network - an initiative to promote a more practical approach to foster one-on-one interactions between Miami Law alumni and law students. This program is unique in that it is NOT a traditional mentoring program. Instead, this is a ‘connector initiative’ to infuse law students into various practices and geographic locations. Iinvolvement may be as simple as forwarding a resume to a colleague who may be in the market to hire a young lawyer, discussing your work or enjoying a cup of coffee for 20 minutes with a student to give him/her some tips and/or referrals to contact. If you are an employer and an alum, consider participating.
