In the December issue of the American Bar Association Law Student Division's Student Lawyer magazine, UDM Law Assistant Dean of Career Services and Outreach Markeisha Miner provides advice to law students who are beginning their job search and are interested in a certain practice area but do not know how to go about finding prospective employers in their preferred locations.

Her article, "Getting the Backstory: Tips for Employer Background Research," gives valuable information on how to gather facts; invest time wisely by conducting informational interviews of attorneys in that practice area and attending bar association functions; be informed through traditional and social media; and how to meet employers in your chosen field by working through your personal network.
