Online Scheduling: Begin by selecting OCS or OPICS, followed by the appointment type you wish to schedule and then your advisor. You will be required to register with the system. Please note that you must select the appropriate appointment type (e.g. JD Job Search for current student appointments) in order to see the available appointment slots for your assigned advisor.
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 advisor 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. 1L advisors are as follows:
Gary McGinnis (1Ls - OCS)
Celia Spiritos (all class years - OCS)
Rob Cacace (1Ls - OCS)
Jen Van Buren (1Ls - OCS)
Arielle Pacer (1Ls - OCS)
Marcia Shannon (OCS)**
Nirvana Dove (OCS)
**Please call the OCS front desk at 202-662-9300 to schedule an appointment with Marcia Shannon.

Clerkships: JD students seeking guidance about post-graduation judicial clerkships should first attend a clerkship information session held every Wednesday in OCS from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. (Sept. - May). For more information, please visit the Judicial Clerkships page.
