The cost for attending the academy is $140. This tuition fee includes on-campus housing, breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday (and a per diem stipend may be provided for dinners for those utilizing NEVAA's overnight accommodations), and all academy curriculum materials. NEVAA will also provide mileage reimbursement to and from your location in Nebraska at $0.565 per mile.

The application form may be completed on our website at http://nebraskanevaa.org/application/application-form/. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 5th.
The application is geared toward those already working in the field but the organizers have reserved a limited number of spots for current students. If the application questions don’t seem to fit you as a student, select “other” and note that you are currently a law student. In the essays, focus your answers on how this training would aid your ability to serve victims in your future career. If you have questions, ask Tammy King.

The class will be held August 12-16, 2013 in Lincoln, NE. Cost is only $50 and includes lunch each day.
Only 35 spots are being held for Creighton 2013 graduates and only 30 spots are being held for 2014 graduates (both UNL and Creighton students are invited), so register ASAP. Please note on the registration form that you are a Creighton Law 2013 Graduate or a Creighton Law Rising 3L. If you have any questions about the class, just ask the CDO.
Don't forget to check the job postings on Symplicity regularly. Area employers often contact our office seeking Creighton Law students for school year, summer and entry-level positions.
When responding to specific job postings, always remember: to apply well in advance of any stated deadlines (often employers review resumes and conduct interviews on a rolling basis - offers may be made before the deadline) and tailor your cover letter specifically to qualities sought in the posting.
Law Crossing Access
The CDO has received a promotional code that will allow Creighton Law students FREE access to the job postings available on LawCrossing. The promotional code information is stored on the homepage of Symplicity or you can contact the CDO.
Remember that job postings should be only a small part of your job search strategy. The vast majority of legal jobs are found through building connections and networking. If you’d like to discuss your individual job search strategy, please schedule an appointment with Tammy King or Nancy Dickhute.
