Pitt Law Students and Alumni

Pitt Law alumni and students seeking employment in other geographic regions may request that the PDO send a request to a law school in another area on their behalf. This request allows Pitt Law students and alumni to access the job postings of other law schools for a limited amount of time. Please identify the law school(s) in your area of interest. Review the school’s website for information on their reciprocity policy.
