Our Services

We are committed to helping employers recruit students in a variety of methods, including:

On-campus Interviews
Many employers visit Dickinson Law on a regular basis as part of ongoing recruitment efforts. You can meet our students on campus at Lewis Katz Hall during the academic year. If you choose to participate in on-campus interviews, you have the option to pre-screen candidates. We provide interview rooms on campus and will facilitate the interview day, making the process quick, easy and enjoyable.

Videoconference Interviews
Dickinson Law’s facilities integrate sophisticated videoconferencing equipment into specially designed interview rooms and classrooms. As a result, we regularly have videoconference interviews with employers located throughout the U.S.

This technology is the perfect avenue for long-distance recruiting: employers can connect with students from the convenience of their offices, avoiding undue travel expenses and scheduling conflicts, and offers our students access to the entire range of opportunities nationwide.

Résumé Requests
Our résumé collection program. A résumé collection job posting allows employers to receive application packets compiled by the Career Services Office from a pool of our qualified students and alumni.

Direct Contact Job Postings
The Career Services Office will advertise your job opportunity to current Dickinson Law students, recent graduates and alumni.

Direct contact postings enable students, graduates and alumni to send their application materials directly to the hiring contact for immediate review.

Off-Campus Interviews
Our students participate in job fairs in various parts of the country, including Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., New York and California.

Local job fairs our students attend include:

  • GPALS (Greater Philadelphia Area Law School Consortium) Job Fair (August, Washington, D.C.)
  • GPALS Public Interest and Public Service Job Fair (Spring, Philadelphia)
  • Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair (October, Arlington, VA)

NALP Guidelines

The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) sets guidelines on recruiting and timing which Dickinson Law encourages all employers and students to abide by. Students and employers should read and review the NALP Principles and Standards for Law Placement and Recruitment Activities to ensure compliance with their responsibilities regarding recruitment for summer and permanent employment. Specifically, employers who are NALP members must follow the guidelines along with NALP member schools. NALP member employers are expected to follow the guidelines, as well. Students or employers with questions regarding the application of the NALP Guidelines can direct them to the Career Services Office.
