The Ovadia Career Planning and Placement Office at the Florida International University College of Law grants limited reciprocity services to other ABA-accredited and NALP-member schools that afford reciprocity to FIU Law students and graduates. The CP&P Office reserves the right to modify its Policy of Reciprocity to match a requesting school’s more restrictive policy, to keep pace with the employment demands of local and national legal communities, and according to its discretion. Furthermore, the CP&P Office’s policy restricts the use of services to one area school at a time.
Requests for reciprocity must be made for each student or graduate by their law school’s career services administrator. Requests may be faxed, mailed or emailed to the CP&P Office. Please allow a reasonable amount of time for us to return a response. Upon approval, reciprocity will be extended for a period of three months from the date of approval. A renewal is considered a new request. Reciprocity is unavailable from August 1 to November 30, regardless of when initially requested. Reciprocity visitors must abide by the CP&P Office’s procedures. A letter of reciprocity and school ID must be presented by the student to identify herself/himself on each office visit.
Reciprocity privileges may permit use of the CP&P Office’s Resource Library and access to current job postings, in person.
An applicant granted reciprocity must state in each employer cover letter that, through a reciprocal agreement with the applicant’s school, the job posting was provided by the CP&P Office at FIU Law.
