Interview programs match employers and law students

Early in 2010, there are two excellent interview programs for legal employers who would like to hire interns for the summer 2010 and/or May 2010 graduates for entry-level attorney positions:

Eighth Annual Government and Public Interest Interview Program

The law schools at the University of Richmond, Washington and Lee, and William & Mary invite government and public interest legal employers to participate in the 8th Annual Government and Public Interest Interview Program, to be held at the University of Richmond campus on Friday, February 19, 2010.  Employers will be able to interview first- and second-year students for summer 2010 positions, and May 2010 graduates for entry-level positions.
     

The 26th Annual Commonwealth Law School Consortium Spring Interview Program

The law schools of William & Mary, the University of Virginia, Washington and Lee University, and the University of Richmond invite employers to participate in the 26th Annual Commonwealth Law School Consortium Spring Interview Program on Friday, March 26, 2010, to be held at the College of William & Mary School of Law in Williamsburg.  The program will enable employers to interview second-year students for summer 2010 positions and May 2010 graduates for entry-level positions.

There are the significant advantages to employers who participate in these programs: 

  • The programs are free (and lunch is provided to all interviewers);
  • Employers can interview students from several Virginia-based law schools at one time and in one location;
  • Employers can pre-screen resumes to select only those candidates they want to interview;
  • For government and public service employers, all law schools offer summer fellowship programs for students who accept unpaid or low-paying public service positions; and
  • Employers can interview at the program or request interested candidates' resumes to be forwarded to them.
