Pitt Law Recruiting Policies 2021-2022

The following policies have been established to protect the interests of both law students and employers. By recruiting at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, employers agree to abide by these policies.

On-Campus Interviews

On-campus interviews are held throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. We can schedule these interviews to occur at the law school or within your office. There is no fee to conduct OCI. Please register through PittLawWorks.

In 2012, Pitt Law began offering the option of on-site screening interviews. As a result of the overwhelming positive response, we encourage employers to hold screening interviews at your Pittsburgh offices during Fall Recruitment Weeks 1-3. As a reminder, a member of the Pitt Law Professional Development Office will be on-site to ensure a successful interview day. If you are recruiting for an office outside of the downtown Pittsburgh area, please request an interview schedule at the Law School.

We are also happy to facilitate video conference interviews for employers located outside of the Pittsburgh region that are unable to travel to campus for interviews. 

Spring Recruitment 2022

OCI dates are available beginning January 31, 2022 (please note that March 7-11 is Spring Break and not available for OCI). Employers may request a date that is mutually convenient by registering directly on PittLawWorks or contacting our office. Our office can faciliate video conference interviews or host employers on-site in accordance with the University's COVID-19 visitor policy, which requires all visitors to wear a mask while inside University buildings, regardless of vaccination status. Effective December 6, 2021, the University will require all Pitt faculty, staff and students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved exemption.

Please contact Sarah Weissman, Director of Employer Recruitment & Private Sector Careers to schedule your spring OCI or ask questions about recruiting at Pitt Law. 

Fall Recruitment 2022

As higher education and the economy adapt to the current challenges surrounding COVID-19, the Professional Development Office (PDO) wanted to provide you with an update on Pitt Law's plan to address 2022 Fall Recruitment and OCI.

Currently, the PDO plans to host traditional OCI beginning August 2022 when many employers will be looking to hire for their Summer 2023 classes. Our office will offer OCI for the fall term virtually beginning August 1, 2022.  Information will be available soon to register for Fall 2022 OCI.

This plan may be subject to change according to prevailing health and government limitations as the summer and school term progresses. Our office will be sure to communicate any pertinent information regarding changes as soon as they may be known.

Grades:

From the Fall 2020 semester onward, Pitt Law has returned to its standard grading policy. You may view Pitt Law's grading policy here.  

Pitt Law has committed to a policy of not providing an academic ranking of students. Recognizing the needs of those who hire according to class rank, the grade distributions for each class may be found here

Law Journal Invitations:

Law journal invitations will be extended to rising 2Ls in mid-July. These invitations are based on a combination of grades and a write-on submission.

Collect Resumes

If you are unable to attend any of our interview programs, PDO will collect and forward student resumes to you. At your request, we can then work with you to arrange an interview schedule either at your office or at a mutually convenient location. Please register through PittLawWorks.
