Recruitment Programs for Law Students
Due to COVID-19 protocols, programs are subject to change. Some programs may be re-scheduled and some may move to a virtual format. Contact Jen Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215.571.4702 for more information.
Fall On-Campus Interview Program
Our On-Campus Interview Program (OCI) typically begins in the summer and continues through October. OCI is open to all second- and third-year law students. The majority of employers participating in OCI focus on rising 2L students for summer positions.
Spring On-Campus Interview Program
Early in the spring semester, the Career Strategies Office sponsors a smaller recruitment program for employers seeking to recruit first-, second- and third-year law students for summer and post-graduate positions.
Information about On and Off Campus Recruitment and Interview Programs is available from the Career Services Office.
Off-Campus Recruiting Programs
We are a member of the Greater Philadelphia Area Law School Consortium (GPALS), a group of seven Philadelphia-area law schools that includes the University of Pennsylvania Law School, Penn State University Dickinson School of Law, Rutgers School of Law - Camden, Temple University Beasley School of Law, Villanova University School of Law and Widener Law.
GPALS holds several major job fairs and recruiting programs through the year in which students from all member schools can participate. All GPALS job fairs are operated through the GPALS Symplicity Site. Students only need to register once to participate in all GPALS job fairs, networking programs and events.

GPALS Careers in Federal and State Government (2Ls, 3Ls): September 10, 2020
This program is sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Area Law Schools (GPALS) Consortium. The program aims to educate law students about career opportunities in the federal government. It includes a panel discussion by recent graduates and experienced practitioners about federal service, a presentation on searching for government jobs and a networking reception. It may also include a resume collection from individual employers.
We assist our students with their participation in national, regional, and local job fairs.
