Jayne Schreiber, assistant dean of career planning, was quoted in an article in The National Jurist on the latest trends in employment in the legal industry and the impact of COVID-19.
Jayne Schreiber, Assistant Dean of Career Planning at Fordham University School of Law in New York, also follows the latest employment trends.
“I have been speaking to alumni in areas that we believe will only get busier as a result of the pandemic and the economic downturn,” Schreiber said. “Areas like bankruptcy law, labor and employment law, matrimonial law, internet law and child advocacy, to name a few. Also, of course, health law will probably be an area that will be very busy as well.”
Schreiber said Fordham University prepares students through clinics, journals, and student-run organizations, to name a few opportunities. But its alumni may be its greatest strength when it comes to employment.
“We truly have what we call ‘The Network Effect.’ Our alumni, numbering over 21,000 and working in over 80 countries around the globe, really care about our students and want to do everything they can to assist them as they head into the marketplace,” Schreiber said.
