Some law schools, through a process called reciprocity, permit graduates of other law schools to visit their career services offices and/or to subscribe to their graduate job newsletters. Please note reciprocity is only available during certain times of the year and may be difficult to obtain in major metropolitan areas. To request reciprocity, please contact our Resource Library (firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.994.7340).
