Recruitment Programs

The Office of Career Planning sponsors robust recruitment programs through which students obtain internships, part-time, and postgraduate opportunities.

Fall Recruitment

Beginning in the summer, and continuing through much of the fall semester, many legal employers recruit students for their summer programs and for postgraduate positions. New York Law School invites law firms, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies to review applications from NYLS students, and in many instances, interview them on campus.

For more information, review the Fall Recruitment Information Packet available on the student portal.

Spring Recruitment

During the spring semester, the Office of Career Planning invites small and midsize private employers and government and nonprofit organizations to participate in Spring Recruitment.  Through a combination of job postings and on-campus interviews, these employers will hire many of our students for a variety of internships.

For more information, review the Spring Recruitment Information Packet available on the student portal.
