Requests for Reciprocity for Job Seekers
Mitchell Hamline School of Law Students and Alumni
A Mitchell Hamline School of Law student or graduate may request reciprocity to utilize the career services resources of another participating law school. To find out the reciprocity policy of a particular law school, visit the individual school’s career services website or visit the NALP website. Note that many law schools may restrict the use of their resources because of the demands of their on-campus interviewing and other programs. On-campus interviewing typically occurs in the August through November time frame but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, many 2020-2021 on-campus interviewing programs have been rescheduled to the November to March timeframe.
To request reciprocity at another participating school, please email email@example.com with your written request and a link to the reciprocity policy for the school from which you are seeking reciprocity. The Mitchell Hamline Career and Professional Development Office will contact the identified school to request reciprocity on your behalf after receiving your request.
