Employers Interviewing on Campus

During Early Interview Week (EIW) in August 2016, 500+ offices from 33 states, Washington, D.C., and six foreign countries conducted over 4,900 interviews with our students. Approximately 300 of our 2L and 3L students participated in this program. In addition to EIW, we offer smaller on-campus programs in the fall and winter. Beyond on-campus interview opportunities, over 2,100 other offices from throughout the United States contacted the Law School last year to post job openings and to request student resumes. Nearly all of the American Lawyer Top 100 firms, the American Lawyer Global 100 firms, and the American Lawyer list of Best Places to Work firms visit the law school or request resumes of Michigan Law students.

Our Recruiting Programs
Our 2017 Early Interview Week (EIW) is scheduled for Tuesday-Friday, August 8th-11th, in the Lawyers Club at the Law School.  Employer registration for EIW opens on Symplicity on Monday, February 6, 2017 at noon EST.  Our Recruiting at Michigan - EIW 2017 Guide (PDF) has instructions and registration information.  Dates for EIW will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please be aware that last year the most popular dates filled up in literally just a few hours after registration was open -- so needless to say, we strongly encourage early registration if you have a specific date in mind.

In addition to EIW, we offer smaller on-campus programs in the fall and winter semester.  Our Winter On-Campus Interviewing Program is in February each year.  Dates for our 2017 Winter OCI are February 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, and 23, 2017.  Registration starts on October 31, 2016 via Symplicity.  Our Recruiting at Michigan - Winter OCI (PDF) has instructions and registration information.

Information on our Fall 2017 On-Campus Interviewing Program will be available in May, 2017.

Student Directories
The Office of Career Planning compiles two student directories each year for distribution to employers who may wish to contact University of Michigan Law School students directly. Each directory includes student name, anticipated graduation date, local and permanent mailing addresses, email address, and undergraduate/graduate schools and degrees received.

Our First-Year Student Directory, comprising exclusively of first-year law students, is typically available in late November. Our Second- and Third-Year Directory comprises rising second- and third-year students and is typically available in early June. To request a Student Directory as a PDF, please email Tammy Sindlinger at sindling@umich.edu.
