During the job search process, having access to the resources of other law schools' career services offices may be helpful, particularly if another law school is geographically located in the area in which you're searching.
Most law schools will consider granting "reciprocity" to another law school's student (i.e., a Syracuse student) if that student's law school is willing to reciprocally grant access to the first law school's students. The College of Law participates in this reciprocal arrangement. To learn which law schools would be willing to consider your request for reciprocity, check the NALP website.
Once you have identified a target school, complete and submit the necessary Reciprocity Request Form. The Office of Career Services will send a letter of request on your behalf to that law school. You will receive a copy of the request letter and of the requested school's response either granting or denying reciprocity. Once you have been granted reciprocity at one school, we cannot make another request on your behalf for three months from the date reciprocity is granted.
Reciprocity requests from students at other law schools will be considered individually by the Office of Career Services and are usually granted on a one-to-one basis. Requests for services must be made in writing—preferably via email—by a Career Services official from the student's law school.
The following services will be provided to students from other law schools to the extent that the reciprocating school provides in-kind career services:
