Reciprocity

The Brandeis School of Law will grant reciprocity to students and graduates of other law schools if the following conditions are met:

  • The law school requesting reciprocity allows 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 its student or graduate offers the same to UofL students and graduates.
  • A member of the Career Services Office from your law school must submit a letter requesting reciprocity, in addition to providing a copy of its own reciprocity policy. Please be sure to have your school include your date of graduation or anticipated date of graduation. Requests should be addressed to:

Debra Reh, Career Services Coordinator
Louis D. Brandeis School of Law
University of Louisville
Louisville, KY 40292
dkreh@louisville.edu

Requests will be processed within 1 to 2 weeks of receipt. The requesting law school will receive notification by e-mail. Reciprocal privileges are non-transferrable and intended for the specific individual to whom reciprocity has been granted. If you are granted access to our Symplicity system, the following restrictions will apply to your Symplicity account:

  • You are not allowed to upload documents on Symplicity if an employer has requested applicants to submit documents by uploading them on Symplicity.
  • You must identify yourself as a reciprocity student or graduate and that you have obtained reciprocity from the Brandeis School of Law.
  • If the Office of Professional Development is collecting resumes, cover letters, writing samples, etc., you are not eligible to apply.

Reciprocity services do not include individual counseling, resume/cover letter review or eligibility to participate in on-campus interviews or job fairs. Reciprocity will not be available between August 1st and November 1st.

The Assistant Dean for Professional Development and the Career Services Coordinator have the discretion to deny services to individuals who misuse their privileges or who surpass a reasonable number of requests.
