  • Reciprocity: You may want to visit a law school career office close to where you live in order to view local job listings or lawyer directories. Through an agreement with Cornell called “Reciprocity,” you can access such services at other law schools, usually between December and July. Reciprocity services vary, so visit NALP's reciprocity page to investigate what services your local law school offers. Contact Lisa Carberry to request reciprocity on your behalf.
