Reciprocity Policy

FIU Law Students & Alumni Requesting Reciprocity From Other Law Schools

Many law schools make their career planning offices and services available to students and alumni of other law schools on a reciprocal basis. Practices and available services vary from school to school, and an advance letter of introduction from the Ovadia CP&P Office is required.

To request reciprocity, contact Alina Rivero at Those requesting reciprocity must provide their year in school or year of graduation, contact information, the law school from which they are requesting reciprocity and, if available, the contact information for the reciprocity coordinator at that school, which may be available through NALP.

Please note: Most schools do not offer reciprocity services during the fall, and students and alumni may only have one active reciprocity request at a time.
