Fall On-Campus Interview and Resume Collection Programs

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 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.

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.

Spring On-Campus Interview and Resume Collection Programs

During the spring semester, Hofstra Law hosts dozens of 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 on-campus, one evening in March.

Employers may also arrange to conduct on-campus interviews at the Office of Career Services throughout the semester.

There is no fee to participate in this program, and employers select 100 percent of the students they wish to interview.
