Requesting Reciprocity

University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law Students or Graduates

Reciprocity allows University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law students or graduates to obtain access to Career Services Offices of other law schools throughout the country.  Before you request reciprocity, it is your responsibility to research the reciprocity policies of law schools from which you want to obtain reciprocity. Reciprocity policies for most law schools can be found at:   http://www.nalp.org/reciprocitypolicies?s=reciprocity%20policies 

If the law school's reciprocity policy is not listed, visit the law school Web site and search under "Career Services."  When requesting reciprocity, please list your first three choices of law schools from which you want to obtain reciprocity.

Non UofL Brandeis School of Law Students or Graduates

The Brandeis School of Law will grant reciprocity to students and graduates of other law schools provided that the law school requesting reciprocity allow similar reciprocity privileges to Brandeis School of Law students and graduates.

 

• Reciprocity will be granted for a period of 90 days and you must come to the UofL campus to view our job postings.  Occasionally, we grant access to reciprocity recipients to our Symplicity job database but ONLY if the law school requesting reciprocity on behalf of their student/graduate offers the same to UofL students/graduates. 


• A letter requesting reciprocity from a member of the Career Services Office from your law school is required in addition to a copy of its reciprocity policy.  Letters should be emailed to Debra Reh at:  dkreh@louisville.edu  Please include the date of graduation for alumni or the anticipated date of graduation for a student.  Requests should be addressed to:
