Recruit Emory Law

The Center for Professional Development & Career Strategy connects employers and students through our interview programs, online employment postings, career-related panels and presentations, and other networking events.

On-Campus Interview Program

Beginning with our August OCI program and continuing throughout the fall, employers conduct on-campus interviews with second- and third-year students for summer and permanent positions.  Beginning in the spring semester, on a date of the employer's choice, employers may request schedules to interview students from any class year. Please see below for instructions and links.

Employers who choose not to conduct interviews at the law school, but who are interested in receiving resumes from Emory Law students can submit employment opportunities to the Career Center. We will communicate with our students, post the position on Symplicity, collect application materials, and forward those materials for your review.

Please contact Laura Yearout, Senior Director, at 404.712.9388 if you have questions about our recruiting programs or if you have misplaced your Symplicity account log in information.
