Can you explain this employment information?

Hello [cahwc12] -
Thank you for your interest in Case Western Reserve University School of Law. Kelli Curtis forwarded me your e-mail asking about employment information and asked that I respond to you. Improving employment prospects for our students is always one of our top priorities. Obviously we would love to have a perfect placement for all of our students. As you may be aware the legal market was severely impacted by the economic challenges that many industries have faced in recent years. All law graduates are entering a legal employment market that is drastically different than what many people had become accustomed to. Our University and Career Development Office (CDO) has instituted a number of initiatives in an effort to boost our graduates' employment prospects. First and foremost our Law School adopted a new curriculum this past fall based in on feedback we received from hiring partners at law firms and recent graduates. Our new curriculum is designed to give you more practical experience and develop the skills that hiring partners are looking for. Our CDO posted over 1400 jobs last year to our online job search system. One of the biggest functions of CDO is employer outreach which involves connecting with potential employers and sharing with them the skills and abilities of Case students. The CDO also has a number of workshops available to help you explore different career paths, draft your resume, hone your interview skills and improve your networking. We have an active and involved Alumni network which will also reach out to students.
I hope this helped give you some insight about what Case Western is doing to help its students. If I have not addressed something please don't hesitate to ask follow up questions. Please let me know if you would like to be put in touch with a person in our CDO office who can offer some more insight about career prospects. Finally, please let me know if you have any additional questions about anything else.
