The Executive Director of Career Development ensures that career services and placement programs are properly executed, which includes oversight of the On-Campus Interview Program and 12Twenty System.

About Atlanta's John Marshall Law School
Located in one of America’s most vibrant cities, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School is dedicated to providing a high quality legal education consistent with its original mission of providing non-traditional students access to a legal education. Consequently, the student population is not just ethnically diverse but diverse in life experiences and professional background. While this diversity enriches the academic environment, it challenges the institution to meet the educational needs of its students, many of whom are either returning to the rigors of an academic experience, or are simply seeking a supportive environment for the study of law.
Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School meets this challenge by motivating students to develop intellectually and encouraging them to develop the practical skills necessary for the profession. At the same time, the school provides options that allow students to control the pace of learning. All of this takes place within an environment supportive of the dream of joining the noble profession of law.
