For Employers

On-Campus Interview Programs

Each year, the Career Services Office conducts both a Fall and Spring On-Campus Interview Program (OCIP). OCIP allows employers to conduct initial screening interviews with upper division students for summer associate/law clerk and attorney positions (Spring OCIP also includes the option to interview first-year students). Southwestern does not charge employers to participate in these programs.

To meet the needs of recruiters, we are one of the few schools that utilizes 100% resume pre-screening. In addition, both programs offer:

  • Flexible scheduling options
  • Transcripts and/or writing samples (if requested)
  • Private, on campus interview rooms
  • Complimentary lunch and parking

Legal employers wishing to participate in Southwestern's OCIP should download the following:
