Recruiting Opportunities

It is our goal to assist you in establishing a program that will best meet your recruitment needs.

  • Symplicity – Employer access for job postings & on campus interviews.
  • On Campus Interviews (OCI) – The Law School invites you to participate in our On Campus Interview Program. If you are a regular participant or have not participated before, we want to welcome you to this important recruiting activity. The Fall OCI Program begins in late August and continues through early November. The Spring OCI Program begins in late January and continues through early April.
