Emory Law Reciprocity Policy

NALP member law schools support a policy of providing employment search assistance to students and graduates of other schools through reciprocity.

Reciprocity services vary among the law schools that offer reciprocity. These services may include access to

  • the host law school's career services facilities
  • legal publications, directories, handouts, and resource library
  • job listings (typically on-site only, and not online)

Typically, the following services are not available through reciprocity: 

Emory Law Alumni: If you would like to make a request for reciprocity, e-mail Thelma Cole, providing your name, Emory Law graduation year, e-mail address, telephone number and mailing address, as well as the name of the school from which you are requesting reciprocity. If reciprocity is granted, you need to read and honor the reciprocity policy of the host school. Failure to comply with school policies may result in the termination of reciprocity privileges.

Reciprocity Seekers from law schools outside of the Georgia area: Emory University School of Law Center for Professional Development & Career Strategy provides reasonable access to resources to students or alumni of law schools outside the state of Georgia.

  1. SERVICES are available on a one-to-one basis to students and graduates of other ABA-accredited/NALP member law schools. Reciprocity will only be granted to one law school in the state of Georgia.
    • The requestor's Career Services office must make requests for reciprocity in writing. Submissions must include contact information for the student/graduate, including address. The student/graduate will then receive a copy of our written response. No walk-ins or phone requests will be considered. Reciprocity services include online access to job postings (remote access reciprocity) for a fee of $30.00. Services do not involve on-campus interviews, job fairs, employer mailings, resume referrals, or counseling.
    • Remote access will begin when you receive an e-mail granting reciprocity and expire 30 days from that date. Request remote access reciprocity ($30.00 fee).
    • A request for renewal will be treated as a new request.
  2. REQUESTS for reciprocity services must be submitted by a career services official at least two weeks in advance. An address for the student or alumnus/ae must be provided. Individuals appearing in our office will not be granted services.
  3. SUSPENSION of services is effective from July 1 to December 1. No reciprocity requests will be granted during this period.
  4. Applicants are REQUIRED TO STATE IN COVER LETTERS to employers that the job listing(s) was/were received from this office through a reciprocal agreement with their school. Failure to do so will result in immediate suspension of reciprocity privileges.
