On-Campus Interviews

We invite you to participate in our on-campus interviews and see why Notre Dame students excel in their legal training and stand out with their leadership and service. Each fall, employers have the opportunity to conduct on-campus interviews with second and third year students interested in serving as summer associates or in entry-level positions. In the spring, this program is expanded to include first-year students interested in summer associate or internship positions.

Save the Date! Our Fall 2014 on-campus interview season will commence August 11, 2014. We offer two full weeks of interview dates prior to the beginning of classes on Monday, August 25. Registration is open now through Symplicity or by completing our registration form.

New York Off-Campus Interview Program

Each year, Notre Dame Law School hosts an off-campus interview program in New York City, a market that consistently attracts a high number of our students. Participating employers interview pre-screened second and third year law students committed to the New York legal market at a convenient local site requiring minimal travel time and expense. There is no registration fee for students or employers.

In 2014, our New York Interview Program will be held on Thursday, August 7.

For more information about the New York Interview Program or to send us information about your employment opportunities, please contact Allison Wruble, Recruiting Program Manager, at awruble@nd.edu.


The Law Consortium – Expanded Off-Campus Interview Programs

Notre Dame Law School is a proud member of The Law Consortium. Since 1995, The Law Consortium, which is a group of national, top-ranked law schools, have joined forces to bring outstanding students together with interested legal employers in major markets across the country. The Consortium provides legal employers the unique opportunity to recruit students from multiple law schools at one time and in one location.

  • Boston College Law School
  • Boston University Law School
  • The George Washington University Law School
  • Northwestern University School of Law
  • Notre Dame Law School
  • The University of Texas School of Law

Each year, thousands of second-year and third-year law students from our schools have the opportunity to submit resumes to participating employers for clerkships, internships and permanent positions. Legal employers have the opportunity to prescreen students with a strong interest in their geographic area and bring students directly to them, making these interview programs an effective avenue to recruit top law students.

In 2014, Notre Dame Law School will participate in five interview programs with The Law Consortium:

Each program is coordinated by a participating member school of The Law Consortium. For more detailed information about each specific program, including exact location information and important deadlines, please click on the city name above.

For any and all questions, please contact Ali Wruble, Recruiting Program Manager, at awruble@nd.edu.


Pre-Screening

Employers are permitted to specify either required or preferred hiring criteria for interview candidates. When visiting campus, Notre Dame Law School permits employers to fill 70% of their interview slots with students they have selected. Once employers have made their pre-selections, the remaining 30% of the interview slots are filled by a lottery process from the pool of submitted student bids, consistent with any specified hiring requirements.

Notre Dame Law School does not rank its students and maintains a very rigorous grading system. Employers are strongly encouraged to acquaint themselves with the Law School’s grading policy prior to specifying any hiring criteria. We are happy to answer any questions relating to the policy.


Recruiting Fees – Supporting Public Interest Work

There are no fees attached to recruiting at Notre Dame. We do, however, ask that employers participating in our recruiting programs consider a voluntary $250.00 donation to our Summer Stipend Program. 100% of employer gifts are used to fund this program, which provides stipends to those students who have accepted unpaid summer internships with public interest employers. Each summer, this program supports legal services to those most in need of the energy, dedication, and talent of Notre Dame Law School students. Additionally, a full 100% of this donation is tax-deductible.
