J.D. Admissions. March 29, 2010

This week, the Admissions Blog will be focusing on the HLS Office of Career Services (OCS) and opportunities in the private sector. Harvard Law School provides access to an amazing array of opportunities for students in the private sector, supported by a tremendous network of connections via OCS. You can learn more about OCS here.

To give you a sense of the opportunities students at HLS encounter, our posts this week will focus on the private sector and OCS. We will feature a few guest bloggers as well as a special Q&A post on Friday by Mark Weber, the Assistant Dean for Career Services. Mark has more than 15 years of experience counseling and advising students and attorneys about their careers.

He is also a CPA and worked in the tax department of a Big Four public accounting firm in Chicago for two years. Mark is an active member of NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals and has held numerous leadership positions within the organization including serving on the Board of Directors, the Long Range Strategic Planning Committee, and Chairing the Nominating Committee.
