On-Campus Recruiting Programs

Law firms and employers from across the country and around the world are invited to visit New York University School of Law to recruit our students. On-campus interviews are generally not pre-screened and scheduled on the basis of students' preferred selections through a lottery.

Approximately 650 private law firms, public interest organizations, government agencies, corporations, banks and public accounting firms join us on campus at NYU School of Law to interview our students. Typically, the interviewers come from more than 30 states and countries around the globe.


Pre-Season Employment Program ("PEP")
This Program has been suspended indefinitely due to the COVID-19 crisis.
NYU Law is pleased to introduce an optional pilot Pre-Season Employment Program (“PEP”), to supplement Early Interview Week (“EIW”). 
Through PEP, students can apply to five law firms in March.  The goal is to reduce the June/July/August compression, enable employers to focus on their summer programs, and provide interview opportunities to the NYU Law students who work outside of their 2L “target” cities during their 1L summer.  To alleviate the time pressure on both students and firms, we are implementing an offer kick-off date of June 8.  

Winter Interview Program (WIP)
January 13-15, 2021

Winter Interview Program (WIP), formerly Early Interview Week (EIW), remains the cornerstone of NYU Law's recruiting program and is the most effective method to recruit NYU Law talent.  WIP enables employers to meet with a large number of NYU Law students efficiently as well as to review two semesters of grades, journal/moot court membership, and first year summer legal experience.
WIP is the largest JD recruitment program of the year for 2L and 3L students. Approximately 350+ employers interview for summer or full-time positions. Students participate in required workshops prior to registration for this program. Students participate in an average of 23 interviews during this intensive program, and approximately 130 interviews are scheduled each day.  In order to accommodate all of our national and international firms, our program will be held at a hotel in Times Square over three days.

The Fall OCI Program supplements the Winter Interview Program (WIP) program.  Most employers who participate in OCI are corporations or mid-sized and smaller U.S. law firms that do not participate in WIP.  Interviews with private sector employers are assigned through a lottery, based on students' ranked preferences.
