The Graduate Professional Development Program (GPDP) was created to address the career planning and professional development needs of Fordham Law School’s LLM community. The GPDP sponsors a wide variety of services for students, including assistance with résumé writing, interviewing skills, and job-search strategies, as well as individualized counseling sessions.
