Reciprocity Policy

The Career Development Office at UCI Law will allow students and alumni of other ABA-accredited NALP member law schools to use its resources on a case-by-case basis.

Request Procedures

  • All requests must be made in writing (preferably by email to by a professional at the student's or graduate's career services office.
  • All requests are evaluated individually and granting of reciprocity is not guaranteed.
  • UCI Law will communicate with the requesting school only, but will send a copy of the approval or denial to the student or graduate if contact information is provided. Please instruct your students or graduates not to contact UCI Law directly.


If reciprocity is granted, students and alumni will gain access to our physical Career Library and have on-site guest access to our online job listings. The office will not provide career counseling, nor will it grant access to on-campus interview programs or password-protected sections of the Career Development Office website.
