Reciprocity

Many law schools make their career development offices and services available to students and alumni of other law schools on a limited reciprocal basis. Practice and available services vary from school to school. Please see the National Association for Law Placement's website for details on individual law schools' reciprocity policies.  Please note: Most schools do not offer reciprocity services during the fall.

Chicago-Kent students requesting reciprocity from a law school outside of Chicago, may complete a reciprocity request form

Students and alumni from other law schools may request reciprocity with Chicago-Kent according to the following policy:
