Reciprocity services are available to students and alumni of American Bar Association (ABA)-accredited law schools that allow students and alumni of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law to use their reciprocity services. Students and alumni can use the resources at other law school career services offices depending on the specific law school’s policy. Reciprocity is offered to students and alumni of law schools that are located outside of the Pittsburgh area.
Reciprocity provides access to the job binders in the Career Services Resource Center and to the online jobs postings via Symplicity.
- Letters requesting reciprocity must be sent by the requesting law school on behalf of the student or alumnus. Letters should include the following:
- the alumnus’ graduation date or student's anticipated date of graduation
- home address
- e-mail address
Requests for reciprocity must be made in writing. Contact Lori McMaster.
- Reciprocity provides access to the job binders in the Career Services Resource Center and to the online jobs postings via Symplicity. These services are available to the student/alumnus for a period of two months from the date reciprocity is granted. The student or alumnus may request one extension beyond the two month timeframe by contacting Lori McMaster.
- Reciprocity is not granted during fall recruitment, which runs each year from July 1 through November 30. The two-month extension may be shortened or delayed if it conflicts with fall recruitment.
- Reciprocity does not provide for participation in fall or spring recruitment, on-campus interviewing, career counseling, or University of Pittsburgh career fairs, nor does it permit the submission of applications through the Symplicity interface.
- The University of Pittsburgh School of Law reserves the right to deny a student or alumnus reciprocity if the requesting school has refused to provide reciprocity services to a University of Pittsburgh School of Law student or alumnus.
- The University of Pittsburgh School of Law reserves the right to refuse or rescind reciprocity privileges and services at any time.
