Recruitment Programs

Fall Recruitment

We welcome participation by employers in our Fall Recruitment On-Campus Interview (OCI) and Résumé Collect (RC) Programs.  The OCI program facilitates the interviewing of 1L and 2L law students for summer positions.  In addition, some employers interview our 3L students for post-grad jobs.  Employers select 100 percent of their interview schedule from the many qualified NYLS applicants and identify the dates they prefer to conduct on-campus interviews of their selected candidates beginning with our On-Campus Interview Week, August 8 to 12, 2016.  Employers in the RC Program interview selected candidates at their own offices.

We begin accepting registrations from interested employers in February and continue through May.  There is no fee to participate for any employer.

Spring Recruitment

Our Spring Recruitment Program primarily serves employers who interview candidates and make hiring decisions for summer internships during the Spring semester. Many small to mid-sized law firms, as well as government and non-profit employers, participate in our Spring Recruitment Program.

Spring Recruitment Employers have the option of interviewing candidates on campus or simply collecting résumés of qualified students.  There is no fee to participate for any employer.

If you would like additional information on any of these programs, please contact Irina Gomelskaya, Senior Director of Employer and Alumni Relations, at 212-431-2390 or

If there are NYLS alumni at your organization, please share with them our new initiative, the NYLS Alumni Circle, which is designed to benefit our students, as well as the NYLS alumni and their employers who hire our students.  To learn more, visit here.
