Due to the high volume of students preparing for EIW, OCS appointment availability may be limited through August 11. Students are allowed to schedule a maximum of two mock interviews with an OCS counselor (no more than one per day) through August 11. Mock interviews are most effective when scheduled with a counselor you do not know, rather than your section counselor.
Online Scheduling: Begin by selecting OCS or OPICS, followed by the appointment type you wish to schedule and then your counselor. You will be required to register with the system.
A note to 1Ls: The National Association for Legal Career Professionals (NALP) sets forth guidelines regarding legal employment. These guidelines state that first-year students should not meet with career counselors before October 15 and should not contact employers before December 1. Most large law firms conform to the NALP guidelines. However, many government agencies and public interest organizations are not members of NALP, and a few set deadlines before December 1 for non-legal positions.
