Principles and Standards for Law Placement and Recruitment Activities

The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) was organized in 1971 to promote the exchange of information and cooperation between law schools and employers. In order to advance those interests, the Association has developed Principles and Standards for Law Placement and Recruitment Activities.

NALP Principles and Standards are organized as follows: (I) General Principles; (II) Principles for Law Schools; (III) Principles for Candidates (Law Students); (IV) Principles for Employers; and (V) General Standards for the Timing of Offers and Decisions.

Students with questions or concerns should schedule an appointment with their primary career counselor in the Career Development Office.
