    Sign Up for OCIs

    Please use this form to request OCI support from our Career Services Office with recruitment of students or recent graduates for summer or postgraduate paid legal positions. Employers are also welcome to contact the CSO directly to learn more or schedule OCI.


    How do OCIs work?

    When you sign up, we collect information about your recruitment needs and confirm with you. We recommend signing up at least two weeks in advance of your preferred interview date so that we can best support you. We provide you with applications that meet your requirements, schedule interviews with your selected applicants, and host you on campus in-person or virtually for interviews.


    When do OCIs begin?

    Employer participation is invited all year, as the CSO will accommodate employer recruitment needs. We recommend considering the following timeframes for the strongest applicant pool.

    Employers recruiting 1Ls for summer positions are encouraged to participate in the winter term (January through March).

    Employers recruiting 2Ls for summer positions are encouraged to participate early in the academic year (late July, August, or September).

    Employers recruiting 3Ls for post-graduation positions are encouraged to participate throughout the academic year (September through November or January through March).

    Employers recruiting recent graduates are encouraged to participate after the July or February bar exams (August or March).
