Fall 2012 Hiring Season

Fall 2012 Hiring Season

The Fall 2012 Hiring Season consists of on-campus interviews which includes private firms, government agencies and corporations who interview students at the law school for clerk or intern positions (part-time during the academic year and full-time over the summer) in addition to associate (full-time upon graduation) positions.  Agencies in the Government Honors & Internship Handbook and The Public Policy Handbook also comprise a large part of available positions for students and graduates.  These jobs can be either paid or volunteer positions.  Public Service fellowships will be part of the Spring 2013 Hiring Season and offer opportunities for students to gain experience and training.
