WELCOME TO LAW CAREERS ADVISING

Welcome to Brown's Law Careers Advising! 

Brown offers a wealth of support to students and alumni interested in the study and practice of law. One-on-one advising is available with our team of 3 academic deans and a faculty member. We support and organize events and programs about the application process, legal education, and law careers. Our main office is in the Pre-Professional Advising Center on the Ground Level the Hemisphere Building at 167 Angell Street (the building housing CareerLAB). We ordinarily also hold open hours in our main office, University Hall, and the Watson Institute. Since March 2020 all of our open hours and appointments are conducted through Zoom. Explore our website, use our reference library and visit us in open hours. We look forward to speaking with you about your interests in law school and the profession.
