ISIP Job Fair
- Students currently enrolled in a US graduate (LLM or JSD) program from one of the participating law schools (see here), who received their first law degree from another country, regardless of their mode of instruction (remote, hybrid, and in-person), are eligible to interview in this program. Participation is limited to one event per degree earned at one of the participating schools. Students currently enrolled in a US JD program are not eligible to participate under any circumstances.
- Students who are graduating in December 2021 should participate in 2021 Virtual Preview Program and ISIP Program.
- JSD participation is limited to one ISIP event while a JSD student. Students continuing their studies during the following fall semester will need to make their need for a summer associate/intern position very clear in a required cover letter to be submitted along with their resume to each ISIP employer. Anticipated date of graduation must also be made clear on resumes
This depends greatly on the country from which you received your law degree and the need for that background among the participating firms, and the number of employers to whom you submit your resume. There are students who are not selected at all and others who have an abundance of interviews.
How closely should I follow employer specifications when submitting my resume?
You will only be able to see the employers that have requested resumes from your country of law degree. You may view the complete list of participating employers through the ISIP Symplicity website. If you believe you have a good reason to apply to additional employers, you must submit a request to your ISIP coordinator along with a cover letter to the employer explaining your reasons for applying and an additional copy of your resume.
When you access the bidding tab on ISIP Symplicity, you will only be able to see the employers that have requested resumes from your country of law degree. You may view the complete list of participating employers through the Resources tab on ISIP Symplicity.
Please remember that employers have requested students with training in certain countries because of their needs for specific legal skills based on existing business relationships. If you believe your home country or background is “related” to the country requested but not specifically listed, or you have another strong reason to believe your credentials qualify you for a particular position, you may submit a request with your cover letter and resume to your school coordinator in order to have it submitted to the employer for review. Detailed instructions for this process are in the Student Instructions.
One word of caution: in the past students have taken unreasonable latitude in this regard, i.e. a student with a Mexican law degree should not submit a consideration for hire to an employer requesting students from Spain. If a request for Spain is being made, this is rather specific—if an employer is looking for Spanish-speaking lawyers, it will be indicated in the system. Speak with your career counselor if you are unsure of your eligibility to apply to a particular employer/position.
