Georgetown Reciprocity Policy
Georgetown Students & Alumni - Access to Other Law Schools
NALP member law schools support a policy of providing job search assistance to students and graduates of other schools through reciprocity. This allows law schools to provide reasonable access to their career resources for law students and graduates from other law schools that agree to provide similar services.
If you would like to request reciprocity, please send the names of up to three law schools to Morgan Hoey, Communications & Resources Manager, at 202-662-9300. You may request reciprocity with one school per state at a time. Services available vary by school. Current reciprocity policies may be found through NALP or the individual law school's website.
Please note: most law schools have a time during which no reciprocity
requests are granted. This black-out period usually occurs from August 1 to December 15
when law schools are preparing for and conducting their on-campus
Students from Other Schools - Access to Georgetown Law
The Career Services Office at Georgetown University Law Center provides limited access to its resources to students and graduates of fellow law schools under the following conditions:
Reciprocity is granted on a one-to-one basis to students and graduates of accredited law schools that allow Georgetown Law students and graduates to use their facilities and resources. Services are only granted to the extent that the reciprocating school provides in-kind services.
Requests for reciprocity must be made in writing from a career services official of the requesting law school to the Office of Career Services. The individual seeking services must wait until he/she receives a letter granting reciprocity before visiting the office and must bring that letter on his/her first visit.
Reciprocal services are available for a period of three months from the date on which reciprocity is granted or until July 31, whichever occurs first. Reciprocity is not extended from August 1 through December 1. The number of visits and the days and times during which reciprocal services can be used may be restricted. An individual granted reciprocity should call our office in advance of his/her first visit to determine if any restrictions may apply.
Reciprocity services include access to the materials in the OCS Career Services Library and on-site access to online job postings.
Reciprocity services do not include remote access to online job postings, access to password-protected areas of Georgetown Law web pages, participation in on- or off-campus recruitment programs or counseling services. No walk-in or phone requests are honored.
The Office of Career Services reserves the right to revoke privileges extended to an individual at any time. The Office of Career Services reserves the right to modify our Reciprocity Policy at any time, without advance notice.
