The Office of Career & Professional Development at UC Hastings College of the Law is located in the heart of a large metropolitan area with a highly competitive legal market. As such it has become a target for many law school graduates from other cities/states, many of whom want to use the resources of UC Hastings’ Career Services office in their job searches. Our reciprocity policy is designed to fulfill our primary responsibility to serve UC Hastings College of the Law graduates, while still offering employment information to job candidates from other law schools. The Office of Career Services of Hastings College of the Law will provide reasonable access to resources for alumni of law schools outside of the San Francisco Bay Area per the following policy:
1. Reciprocity is available to alumni of those ABA-accredited law schools that allow UC Hastings alumni to use their facilities. Reciprocity is granted on a one-for-one basis and lasts for three months or until July 15, whichever comes first.
2. Requests for reciprocity must be made in writing via email by a career services official from the home law school and should indicate the alum’s name, email address, phone number, and class year. Approval for reciprocity must be granted in writing from the UC Hastings Career Office; NO drop-in visits.
Requests should be addressed to:
Stephanie Yee, Reciprocity Coordinator
Office of Career & Professional Development
UC Hastings College of the Law
200 McAllister Street
San Francisco, CA 94102
3. Reciprocity services include only remote access* to the online job board and in-person access to the Career office resource library. Counseling, student jobs, and participation in on-campus interviews (aka OCIs) are not included. *Remote access to the online job board is possible if the requesting school will offer the same to UC Hastings alumni.
4. RECIPROCITY IS CLOSED from July 15 through November 15 each year due to the Fall Recruiting season.
