Employers Interviewing on Campus

During Early Interview Week (EIW) in August 2013, almost 500 employers from 36 states, Washington, D.C., and five foreign countries conducted almost 5,000 interviews with our students. Approximately 380 of our 2L and 3L students participated in this program. In addition to EIW, we offer a smaller on-campus program in the fall. Beyond on-campus interview opportunities, almost 1,100 other employers 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
We are thrilled to announce that our 2014 Early Interview Week (EIW) will be held in the Lawyers Club (the Law School's student dormitory, and part of the Law Quadrangle), making it truly "on-campus interviewing" for the first time in more than decade!  Our 2014 Early Interview Week (EIW) is scheduled for Thursday-Friday, August 7-8th and Monday-Tuesday, August 11-12th. Employer registration for EIW will begin on Monday, March 10, 2014 via Symplicity.  Our Recruiting at Michigan - EIW 2014 (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.

We also offer on-campus interviewing in the fall and winter.  Our Fall On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) Program will be September 17 and 18 and October 1 and 2, 2014.  Our Recruiting at Michigan - Fall OCI (PDF) has instructions and registration information.  Employer registration for Fall OCI will begin Monday, July 14, 2014 via Symplicity.

Our Winter On-Campus Interviewing Program is in February each year.   Dates for our 2015 Winter Interview Program are February 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, and 26.  Our Recruiting at Michigan - Winter OCI (PDF) has instructions and registration information.  Employer registration for Winter OCI will begin on Monday, November 3, 2014 via Symplicity.  Of course, arrangements may be made to interview at other times of the school year if it is more convenient.

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.
