PCDC – Law Student Business Cards

As you begin to establish yourself in the legal community and build your network of professional relationships, first contact is often initiated through a handshake and a business card, stimulating conversation in a variety of professional and social settings. The PCDC is pleased to offer current students the opportunity to purchase official OCU LAW student business cards imprinted with the school’s logo. To order your business cards, please click here.

PCDC Communication Information – Fall 2011

Dear Students:  As you settle into the routine of law school next week, again or for the first time, the PCDC wants to welcome you and give you some input on where you will find information this academic year that will assist in your professional and career development.  Beyond the PCDC Website, information about what we are doing for you is located in four main areas:

1) Symplicity CSM (login required) – Comprehensive resource containing information on: employers, job listings, PCDC events, student profile to post work and volunteer activity, appointment request module, resource library, event registration, etc.  First-year and transfer students will receive information on accessing this soon.

2) PCDC Blog – Instead of sending numerous emails to the student body (you will receive some from the PCDC), we encourage students to subscribe to the RSS feeds we populate.  Don’t know what these are? Click here for RSS in Plain English. For example, we post a “Job of the Day” each business day (this is just one of several jobs posted daily in Symplicity) and at the end of the week we provide information on what is going on with various bar associations for the following week so that you can engage professional networking opportunities.  We also post on numerous other relevant and helpful topics related to finding jobs and making career connections. This information will always be on our blog for easy access and no email filing! Click here to subscribe to PCDC Blog RSS Feed.

3) OCU LAW Events – There are many worthwhile programs and events held throughout the year which enrich a student’s professional and career development.  This calendar is the place to check out the numerous opportunities and associated deadlines coordinated throughout the law school by students, faculty and administration.  Click here to subscribe to the OCU LAW Events Calendar RSS Feed.

4) OCU LAW PCDC LibGuide – This is a partnership effort with the Law Library which features book resources that can be checked out.  As this is a new venture, we would appreciate your feedback!  Click here to subscribe to the PCDC Lib Guide RSS Feed.

We also engage the use of social media, links for which are listed below.  We welcome you to join these communities!  If you have any questions, please let me know. Wishing you the best.

Mental Health and Wellness Resources

Appellate briefs are almost due, moot court is about to begin, and finals are right around the corner.  The last few weeks of a semester can be extremely stressful and anxiety filled, but law students do not have to cope alone.  There are many resources available to students both inside and outside of the library to help. Inside the law library, we are working to make the library as comfortable and user friendly as possible to help reduce your stress during this busy time.  We are also excited to support Monday’s event Mental Health Awareness – A Terrible Melancholy: Depression in the Legal Profession sponsored by PCDC, Student Services, Academic Achievement, ABA Law Student Division, University Counseling, Oklahoma Bar Association Lawyers Helping Lawyers, and Oklahoma County Bar Association Work Life Balance Committee.

As a supplement to Monday’s event, we have created a libguide,  Mental Health Resources for Law Students and Lawyers, with information about klibrary, community, campus, and national resources related to depression, stress, and mental health in the legal profession.  Also stop by our current display and check out some of the titles we have available for you to borrow.

April 25, 2011
4:00 to 6:00 pm
Sarkeys Law Center Atrium

Members of the PCDC staff will offer information and resources to students. We know that students have quick questions and may not always be able to get up to our center to have them answered. This effort is designed to bridge that gap and better familiarize students with all that the PCDC has to offer!
