Reciprocity Policy

Careers_ReciprocityPolicy

Many law schools make their career planning offices and services available to students and graduates 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 the Ovadia CP&P Office at riveroa@fiu.edu.  Students requesting reciprocity most 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.  Their contact information may be available through NALP, the National Association for Legal Professionals.

Please note that most schools do not offer reciprocity services during the fall, and studnets may only have one active reciprocity request at a time.

Students & Alumni of Other Law Schools Seeking Reciprocity with FIU Law

FIU Law is pleased to provide reasonable access to career resources for students or graduates of ABA-accredited law schools that grant reciprocity to FIU Law students and graduates.

  • Requests for reciprocity must be made for each student or graduate by an administrator at their law school’s career services office.  Requests may be made by emailing the External Reciprocity Request Form to riveroa@fiu.edu.
  • Reciprocity will be extended for a period of three months from the date of approval. Reciprocity is unavailable from August 1 to December 15.
  • Reciprocity DOES NOT grant the ability to participate in on- or off-campus recruiting events, counseling services, or résumé collections.
  • Students or graduates may visit the CP&P Office Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. They should bring a copy of the letter granting reciprocity and their school ID.

The Ovadia CP&P Office reserves the right to modify its reciprocity policy without notice to keep pace with the employment demands of the local and national legal communities.
