Legal Authority assists more attorneys and law students, at more law schools, get jobs than any other source.

WE'RE HOW ATTORNEYS GET JOBS

Legal Authority is proud to say that our targeted mailing service helps more law students, recent law school graduates, and attorneys find employment than any other service in the world. Legal Authority was designed with you, the job seeker, in mind. We are constantly evolving to meet every challenge that may be presented and to present solutions to the hardest questions about your job search.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES LEGAL AUTHORITY DO?

Simply put, we grant you access to the largest legal employer database in the world. When you use Legal Authority, you will be interviewed by one of our attorneys who will spend as long as it takes to understand exactly what you are seeking to do with your legal career. Legal Authority will perform searches for you based on your criteria: What practice areas interest you? What type of employer do you want to work for? Do you want a clerkship? How about in-house opportunities? Where do you want to live? What size firm would like to work for? We will then develop a market of employers that is targeted to your particular job search.

Legal Authority's professional writers will review and revise your resume and create a cover letter that is tailored specifically for you. You will work with the writer - as a counselor, guide, and expert - to come up with a letter and resume that are perfect for you.

After we have a final resume and cover letter, Legal Authority will prepare a package of resumes, cover letters and envelopes, addressed to the hiring contact person at each specific employer (no "To Whom It May Concern" or "Dear Hiring Partner"), with your return address and name on them. We will ship the package to you, and all you have to do is sign each letter, stuff each envelope, and put a stamp on each envelope.

I CAN DO WHAT LEGAL AUTHORITY DOES MYSELF

True. You could get subscriptions to over 50 legal directories, make over 500,000 inquiries per year, hire over 40 people to update your database 24 hours a day, hire a crew of attorneys to counsel and advise you on the most appropriate employers to apply to, hire another crew of professional writers to review and revise your resume and cover letter and spend far in excess of $1,000,000 just to maintain a database each year. This is what we do at Legal Authority. Because thousands of law students use our service, the cost is profoundly cheaper than it would be if you were to do the work yourself. Theoretically this is something you could do yourself. Or you could talk to an expert.

Have you ever been to the dentist? When the dentist tells you that he has to anesthetize your mouth, drill a hole in your tooth, and pack it full of metal to stem a cavity, do you ever say, "Thanks, Doc, but I'll just do it myself?" Of course not. He is the expert, and it's worth it to let him do it right the first time. Why would it be any different when you are dealing with something as important as your career?

A lot of law students think they are smarter than us or somehow have everything figured out. Legal Authority is an expert at finding jobs for law students. It's what we do all day, every day.

Most of the law students who use Legal Authority are spending far in excess of $100,000 to attend law school for three years. Presumably, one of the reasons for going to law school is to get the best job possible. Conversely, most law students who use Legal Authority spend less than $500 for our service. In most instances, the cost of using Legal Authority is around $2.00 for each employer we help you contact and our search can be as expansive or narrow as you choose. When you consider that thousands of law students each year get summer and permanent jobs that pay a weekly salary several times more than our service costs, not using Legal Authority could be the expensive route.

"Legal Authority is, quite simply, the most effective way for law students to get the precise legal job they are seeking. Your first attorney job is already in their database."

It is no secret that following the crowd and trying to find a job through your career services office, networking, or applying sporadically to jobs on posting boards can be "hit or miss." You can compete with every other student, at every other law school, trying the same old tried methods, going after the same job listings, or you can take action and call Legal Authority. Legal Authority is the only way to find and apply to every single employer that might be interested in you.

At Legal Authority, we have the resources to help more students find jobs than any other single organization we are aware of in the United States.

Our database contains contacts for virtually every law firm, corporation, and public interest organization in the United States. We will review and revise your resume and help you apply to any employer you choose—anywhere. Our service is also extremely inexpensive. Contact Legal Authority today and let our Attorney Employment Advocates speak with you about your job search and how we can get you your first job.
