Career Research: Starting Points

BLS students and graduates: contact the OCPD team

An OCPD-sponsored program conducted for BLS students.

  • The Office of Career and Professional Development counsels BLS students and graduates on job search strategies, how to draft relevant career search documents such as resume, cover letter and statement of interest, and provides advice on how to achieve career goals.  OCPD's website describes its many resources and programs.  

BLS community members: feel free to ask a librarian for help

BLS librarians can show you how to use tools in this guide to research judges, courts, attorneys, firms and practice areas.

Bloomberg Law: Career Resources

Bloomberg Law's home screen links to Career Resources:

  • Career Resources includes the column Ask the Hiring Attorney, a People Search template, a Company Watchlist, a collection of Law Firm Research (law firm materials highlighting legal developments to clients) and BNA Law Reports. Career Resources also links to Dockets, a template to find case documents filed with courts. Tip: search Dockets by name of an attorney or firm to learn about a lawyer's or firm's current cases.
