The MSU Law Career Services Office (CSO) plays an integral role in our students’ professional development. Working one-on-one and in-group settings, CSO staff members identify the assortment of career options that are available and help students develop and execute strategies to obtain their first professional positions.
MSU Law graduates who focused their studies on IP law have accepted employment at law firms and corporations across the U.S. and throughout the world. Those graduates who have focused on patent law and who have an engineering or science background have achieved particular success, with many earning an entry-level salary of between $75,000 and $150,000.
