The Office of Career Services serves the following primary functions: to provide career development counseling, to promote employment opportunities, and to provide career-related information to both students and alumni. As a former legal recruiter
, Sherr has expertise in all of these areas.
He devoted more than 12 years to legal recruiting and has developed a thorough understanding of the legal job market and the qualities that legal employers desire in a job candidate. As a result, Sherr is committed to more than basic career counseling services in his current role in the Office of Career Services. He is also intent on forming and maintaining relations with potential legal employers, thus bringing more job opportunities to the students he serves, which is particularly important for a law school community such as Loyola Law's, which is located in the heavily saturated legal market of downtown Los Angeles.
Sherr has been active in legal recruiting
and career counseling since 1982 and has extensive experience placing attorneys within major firms in California. Prior to that, he was an attorney with a large Los Angeles law firm, as well as a state agency and two public interest programs. He joined the Office of Career Services in 1994.
He earned his JD from Vanderbilt University School of Law in 1980 and was admitted to The State Bar of California in December of 1980. He holds a BA from the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
