The Spring On-Campus Interview Program

This program consists of:

  • Early Interview Week and Resume Advance (in January), which facilitates interviewing for employers interested in hiring second-year day and third-year evening JD students students for summer positions and employers interested in hiring third-year day and fourth-year evening JD students for post-graduate positions; and
  • Spring Weeks (in February and March), which facilitates interviewing for employers interested in hiring JD students at all class levels for summer or post-graduate positions.

In addition, we offer a Spring Resume Collect Program in late January/early February.

There is no registration fee for participating in the Spring On-Campus Interview and Resume Collect Programs. 

Early Interview Week and Spring Weeks operate under our 60/40 system, whereby employers are permitted to preselect up to 60% of the students who will be placed on their interview schedules; our Student Preference System chooses the remaining 40% of the students on the schedule. Resume Advance employers have 100% selection of the students on their interview schedules.

Register online through Symplicity at Log in, select the OCI Tab, then the Schedule Request Tab, and select Request Schedule. From the Sessions drop-down menu, select the desired Week of Spring OCI, or the January Resume Collect, and complete the requested information.
