Programming

Throughout the year the Office of Career Planning hosts programming specifically for alumni.  Programs include networking forums, job search panels, mentor meetups, and informational presentations. Recognizing that timing and travel are an issue for some, we have and will continue to conduct programming via webinar and/or prerecorded video so that they can be viewed at any time.  If you are interested in getting involved in these events, please contact us at career@nyls.edu.

Reciprocity

If you are job searching in another part of the country, New York Law School may be able to help you obtain reciprocity to utilize another law school’s career office in the region in which you are relocating for a period of up to three months. Reciprocity allows law schools to provide reasonable access to their career resources for graduates and students from other law schools that agree to provide similar services. The exact services provided may vary at different law schools, but often include access to the law schools’ internal job boards. To request reciprocity with an out-of-state career office, please e-mail career@nyls.edu with your request.
