The Career Services Office of Southwestern Law School provides reciprocity to students and graduates of other ABA-accredited law schools as follows:
- Reciprocity will be granted to all
ABA-accredited law schools which allow Southwestern Law School students
or graduates the use of their facilities.
for reciprocity must be made in writing by a Career Services Official.
We will forward a copy of our response to the candidates if an address
is made available.
- All reciprocity requests are
considered on a case-by-case basis. However, reciprocity is
extended to no more than two candidates from one ABA-accredited law
school before the services of that school's career services office are
made available to one of our students. Further, there can be no
more than one student from another school using our Career Services
Office at any time.
- Law Schools seeking
reciprocity with Southwestern Law School must abide by the agreement
established by the Law School Career Advisors of Southern California
stating that the number of requests for reciprocity must be limited by
any one candidate to only one school per geographic region.
Southern California is, for these purposes, divided into two regions,
Los Angeles and San Diego, allowing candidates to request reciprocity
from one ABA-accredited Law School in each region.
