We can organize these to suit your hiring needs at any time. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the position you wish to fill and we will contact students, collect their responses and forward their materials to you. Resume collections are completely pre-screened by the employer, so that you can select whom you wish to interview.
We also operate annual Spring Resume Collections for the distribution of our current LL.M. students' resumes to employers throughout the United States and around the world; anyone interested in receiving the resume packets generated by these Spring Resume Collections is welcome to submit a preferred e-mail address to us at email@example.com.
