Due to COVID-19, the Brandeis School of Law is delaying our 2020 Fall recruiting program that was scheduled to begin in August. Our plans are not finalized and we continue to seek input from each of you in the legal community who regularly recruit our students. However, we are tentatively looking at moving our recruiting program to January 2021. If you have questions or would like to share information about the best hiring timeline for your organization for summer 2021 positions, please contact Debra Reh, Career Services Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each semester, the Office of Professional Development invites legal employers on campus to recruit law students for summer associate, law clerk, intern and entry-level attorney positions. Law firms, government agencies and a host of other legal organizations find on-campus recruiting to be the most practical way to recruit because they can interview a large number of talented students during a full- or half-day schedule.
The University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law values our alumni and employers who hire and support the law school. Accordingly, the law school charges no fees for on-campus recruiting and allows all employers 100-percent selection. The Office of Professional Development staff will coordinate on campus interview dates and gather application materials from students who meet your hiring criteria.
