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.
Our Fall 2013 on-campus interview season will commence August 19 and conclude November 22. To participate in on-campus interviews, please register online through Symplicity or complete the On-Campus Interview Form. You may fax the completed form to (574) 631-4789 or e-mail it to our Recruiting Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you to ensure your time on campus is as efficient and productive as possible.

Off Campus Interview Programs
Each year, Notre Dame Law School hosts off-campus interview programs (OCIPs) in select cities. These programs give second and third year law students the opportunity to interview for both summer and full-time positions at convenient locations around the country. We historically target markets which attract the highest number of our students. OCIPs are similar to on-campus interviews – the only difference is location. Students bid on interviews through Symplicity, and employers are permitted to pre-screen according to the same guidelines governing on-campus interviews. There is no registration fee for students or employers.
In 2013, we will host the following OCIPs:
- New York City, August 5
- Washington DC, August 7
- Los Angeles, August 9
You may register directly through Symplicity or by completing our OCIP registration form. You may fax the completed form to (574) 631-4789 or e-mail it to our Recruiting Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information about the off campus interview programs or to send us information about your employment opportunities, please contact Allison Wruble, our Recruiting Program Manager, at email@example.com.
The Law Consortium – Expanded Off-Campus Interview Programs
We are thrilled to announce that in 2013 we are partnering with The Law Consortium to expand our off-campus interview programs. 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 around the nation 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 2013, Notre Dame Law School will participate in three interview programs with The Law Consortium:
Each program is coordinated by a participating member school of The Law Consortium. For more detailed information about the specific program in any city, including exact location information and important deadlines, click on the city name above.
Registration and bidding for all programs will begin July 1, 2013. Stay tuned for additional details in coming weeks!
For any and all questions, please contact Ali Wruble, Recruiting Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employers are permitted to specify either required or preferred hiring criteria for interview candidates. 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.
