It's an impressive, albeit long title: W.P. Carey Assistant Dean of Career Services Arizona State University Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. It's also what the letterhead for Dean Ilona DeRemer reads. Her responsibilities in this role include maximizing every employment opportunity possible for the students and alumni at ASU College of Law. She serves on the law school's senior staff team, sets polices and procedures, supervises her staff and organizes and administers all of her department's programs. It's a role she's proud of and one that is evident each time a student comes in for a bit of guidance or a quick question on how to word her resume.

Still, it couldn't have been an easy decision to leave the role she was in before arriving at ASU. For nearly twenty years, she served as the Associate Dean for Admissions, Financial Aid and Career Services for Gonzaga University School of Law in Spokane, Washington. While she filled many of the roles she now serves in her current position, she also did public relations and contributed significantly to other areas and campus efforts. While there, she was awarded the CASE National Gold Award for the law school's catalogs.



Career Dean DeRemer received both her B.A. and M.A. from Eastern Washington University in 1976 and 1980, respectively. She was selected by the faculty as the 1976 National Business Education Graduate of the Year. She graduated with high honors and was awarded the Graduate Teaching Fellowship. Further, she has also partially completed coursework as an Educational Administration Doctoral Candidate at Washington State University.

Currently, DeRemer serves on the Arizona Bar Association Committee on Disabilities and the Law, the Maricopa County Bar Task Force for the Recruitment and Retention of Women and Minorities in the Law and she is a member of both the National Association of Law Placement (NALP) and the Rocky Mountain Public Interest Consortium.

And if that doesn't make for a full day, she is invited often to speak at such engagements that include the ASU College of Law Council on Legal Education Opportunities Program and the Pacific Coast Association of Pre-Law Advisors.

Dean DeRemer has redefined multi-tasking and in fact, has taken it to new heights; still, she knows there's much to be done and takes pride in knowing she plays a role in the legal profession. The law students who turn to her have come to respect her and her guidance. Always the cheerleader, her students know where they can turn when they need someone ''on their side'', so to speak.

LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
