Each year, we interview law students – primarily 2Ls – at a variety of law schools and job fairs. Please check out our OCI page to see to see where we will be participating this year. We encourage you to go through the OCI process if we will be on your campus. If we are not on your campus this year, we would still like to hear from you! (Historically, half of our summer class comes from non-OCI schools.) We will start accepting applications via our online application site on June 1 and would love to know if you are in town, however please note that we will not be actively processing any applications until mid-July. Although we have no firm closing date, we typically complete our fall recruiting by mid-September.
To ensure you have a complete application packet, we ask that you include the following information:
- Cover letter
- Current resume
- Copy of your transcript (unofficial is fine)
- Legal writing sample un-edited by a third party
- List of two or three references, one of whom should be a person qualified to comment on your law school work
