Recruiting at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University is easy. We provide a variety of options to all employers, from fall and spring on-campus recruiting programs to resume collections and job postings on Symplicity, our password-protected, online career services management system.
Posting your internship or job openings on Symplicity is the best way to promote your opportunities to the broadest range of our students and alumni. Employers can post part-time, summer, postgraduate and lateral opportunities at any time.
Employers have the option of posting their openings directly on Symplicity or submitting their postings to the Office of Career Services and having us take care of the posting.
If you are a first-time user of Symplicity and would like access to the system for purpose of posting your job listing, please contact us at 516-463-5871 or firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your username, password and instructions for posting your listing.

Please note that Hofstra Law does not permit for-profit employers from posting non-paying positions on Symplicity unless the employer completes and returns to us a certification that the employer is exempt from applicable minimum wage laws.
Our Fall On-Campus Interview Program (Fall OCI) provides second-, third- and fourth-year students the opportunity to apply for interviews with many of the largest international and national law firms; federal, state and local government agencies; and a variety of public interest and not-for-profit organizations.
Fall OCI typically runs from mid-August to late October each year and kicks off with an Early Interview Program that takes place at a central location in Manhattan (for the past several years, the Early Interview Program has been hosted at the Princeton Club). Interviews occurring after completion of the Early Interview Program will take place on the Hofstra campus.
Employers interviewing Hofstra Law students in connection with Fall OCI select 100 percent of the students they wish to interview.
Employers who are not able to conduct on-campus interviews during the fall recruiting season are also welcome to participate in our Resume Collection Program. Through this program, employers will receive from Hofstra Law a packet containing the application materials for all the students wishing to interview with that employer. The employer is free to invite selected students to their offices for an interview.
There is no fee to employers to participate in the Fall OCI and Resume Collection programs.
If you would like to participate in our Fall OCI and Resume Collection programs, please complete and return to us our Program Registration Form and Statement of Non-Discrimination.

In addition to our Fall OCI and Resume Collection programs, Hofstra Law also hosts a smaller spring program. This program is generally geared toward facilitating interviews for first-year students for summer internships; however, the program is open to all students who are seeking summer internships and, in some cases, postgraduate employment.
The spring program runs from mid-February to late April each year. There is no fee to participate in this program, and employers select 100 percent of the students they wish to interview.
