Legal employers from throughout the country come to the Georgia Law campus to interview students for summer and post-graduate employment opportunities. Employers interview throughout the year at Georgia, but typically cluster around each August-November for 2Ls, 3Ls and LLMs and each February-April for 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls and LLMs.
For all programs: Employers participating in on-campus interviews pre-screen applicants. This means that employers receive, in advance, the application materials from interested students, and may then select the students they wish to interview. A list of selected students is forwarded to the Legal Career Services Office and the interview schedule is arranged prior to the visit.

When: August - November
How: Students will apply to Fall OCI opportunities via Symplicity and on a rolling basis. Interview dates will be posted along with the OCI announcement.
