(see further details below)


 Round 1 of the Fall 2012 Job Application Submission Program brings to your attention certain local and national employers who seek law clerks for next summer and entry level attorneys for next year.  We have recently posted our first batch of job opportunities on our website under Round I.  Round II will be available in Mid-August and will offer a variety of other Spring and Summer 2013 job opportunities.

 You will find that Round I consists of employers from mostly large national law firms that are members of the National Association of Law Placement. These firms look early to fill their positions for next year and have deadlines coming soon. These firms are mostly looking for Summer Associates and begin hiring 2Ls during August 2012 for 2013 Summer Associate positions.  A few of these firms are also looking for 3Ls for Entry Level Attorney positions to begin post-Bar in 2013.  Important Resource: The best reference for such firms is the National Association of Law Placement’s National Directory of Legal Employers, available online at

You can find all these great opportunities online on symplicity.  Then go to the “Current Jobs” section on the Career Services Online Job Database. Then search by “Position Type” and click “Round I – Fall 2012 Job Application Submission Program”. Once you click on “Search” it will bring up only those jobs listed in Round I.  Applications are Due By 5:00 p.m. Friday, July 27, 2012 on our Online Job Database unless otherwise noted in the listing.  **Keep in mind some employers have EARLY DEADLINES and some require you to send your application materials directly to them either via U.S. Mail, E-mail, or online. Be sure to read the “How To Apply” section in each job listing carefully so you submit your materials correctly. 

Please visit the FAQ webpage for answers to commonly asked questions and further details on how to apply to Round I Jobs.
