New York Law School Careers

If you are looking for employment in another part of the country, NYLS may be able to help you obtain reciprocity to use the career office of another law school in the area you are moving to for up to three months. Reciprocity allows law schools, graduates and students of other law schools who agree to offer similar services to provide adequate access to their professional resources. Exact services may vary from law school to lawschool, but often include access to law school internal job boards. To apply for reciprocity with a non-governmental career office, contact the Office of Academic Planning and Professional Development. The Office of Academic Planning and Career Development at New York Law School provides law students with personalized advice as early as the first semester of the school and well beyond graduation.

We also connect alumni with resources and work hand-in-hand with a variety of legal employers. Our team has diverse legal experience and expertise in public interest and government, large corporations, judicial internships and alternative legal careers to help students find the opportunities that best position them to achieve their career goals.

Visit the Office of Academic Planning and Career Development during regular business hours to use print library resources, or log in to Symplicity to search the document library for resources on job search strategy, interview techniques, networking, and more.
