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, in early August. 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.

NYLS subscribes to the NALP Principles for a Fair and Ethical Recruitment Process (the “Principles”), and expects the employers with whom we work to be guided by those Principles as well.
