Hofstra Law Office of Career Services is here to serve you, the employer.
We will work closely with you to bring you the talent you seek through several recruitment events (OCI, Spring Interview Program, Recent Grads for Hire), by use of the Symplicity job posts, and by working directly with Daphne Telfeyan, Senior Assistant Dean for Career Development and Employer Relations. Daphne spent over 14 years as a legal recruitment professional and knows how to identify candidates responsive to your searches. She is also available to give direct assistance during the various recruitment programs.

Our Fall On-Campus Interview Program (Fall OCI) provides second and third year students the opportunity to apply for interviews with many of the largest international and national law firms; mid-size and smaller firms; federal, state and local government agencies; and a variety of public interest and not-for-profit organizations.
Fall OCI typically runs from late July 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. We also offer remote interviews through the Flo Recruit platform, which have presently replaced in-person interviews due to the pandemic.
Employers interviewing Hofstra Law students in connection with Fall OCI select the students they wish to interview. We do not operate a lottery.
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.
If an employer is not yet familiar with Hofstra Law students and the great talent they offer, Daphne Telfeyan is happy to work with you to allow you to be introduced to our students through the submission of select resumes.
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.

OCI also offers public sector employers the opportunity to recruit students for their summer programs and for post-graduate employment.
During the spring semester, Hofstra Law hosts employers seeking to hire summer interns and/or entry-level attorneys. Students may apply to as many employers as they wish. Employers select all of the students they wish to interview. The interviews are generally conducted in March both on-campus and at a location in Manhattan. During the pandemic, these interviews are being conducted remotely through Flo Recruit. Employers may also arrange to conduct on-campus interviews at the Office of Career Services or remotely through Flo Recruit throughout the semester.
There is no fee to participate in this program, and employers select the students they wish to interview.
Hofstra Law is committed to a policy against discrimination in employment on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, or sexual orientation. The Career Services facilities of the Law School are available only to employers whose practices are consistent with this policy:
The Association of American Law Schools’ Bylaw 6-3(b) provides:
A member school shall provide equality of opportunity in legal education for all persons, including faculty and employees with respect to hiring, continuation, promotion and tenure, applicants for admission, enrolled students, and graduates, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender (including identity and expression), sexual orientation, age, or disability.
Our own rules similarly prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, marital status, or veteran status. (See Hofstra University’s Nondiscrimination Policy.)
