FIRST-YEAR STUDENT Describe any special regulations pertaining to the recruitment of first year students. For example, are first year students eligible for spring OCI? When are job notices posted during second semester?
We welcome job notices directed to first year students at any time during the academic year. However, employers should not initiate formal one-on-one recruiting contact with students, including applications, interviews, or offers to first year students, before December 1. An exception for earlier recruitment is granted to government employers with extensive security clearance processes. Our Winter 1L Chicago Law Interview Program is exclusively for first year students: interviews are held in late early February. Interviews are held virtually. Like the August CLIP program, we rely on Symplicity to manage this program, and the winter procedures and processes closely follow those used for the August CLIP Program. There are no registration or service fees for Winter CLIP. Employers who register for Winter CLIP dates will be asked to affirm their compliance with all conditions set forth in our Equal Opportunity, Non-Discrimination, and Anti-Harassment Policies (
