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 upper-level J.D. or LL.M. students for summer and postgraduate positions.  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 Early Interview Week, August 10 to 14, 2015.  Employers in our RC Program interview their selected candidates at their own offices.

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

Spring Recruitment

Our Spring Recruiting Program primarily serves employers who only look to hire summer interns and full-time attorneys during the Spring semester.

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.
