The Career Development Office (CDO) welcomes employers to recruit students and alumni for school year, summer and post-graduate positions. The CDO utilizes a variety of services in order to assist employers in meeting their recruiting needs.
Each fall and spring, the CDO welcomes employers to campus as part of its On Campus Interview (OCI) Program. As participants in the OCI program, employers have an opportunity to interview students for summer and post-graduation positions. In conjunction with our OCI program, the CDO sponsors the Résumé Referral program. This program provides employers unable to interview on campus with an opportunity to receive applications from University of Miami School of Law students and proceed with the interviewing process at their convenience. Employers may elect to receive applications directly from students or via a collection conducted by the Career Development Office.
If you are seeking to fill your summer, part-time, entry-level or lateral employment needs, we encourage you to submit a job listing on our web-based job posting system, Symplicity. This service is free for employers. You may create your own Symplicity account which will enable you to post your available positions or you may send the information to our office for posting.

The recent economic crisis has resulted in a reduction of funding for public sector agencies while the demand for legal services has dramatically increased. The goal of Legal Corps is to fill the gaps at these understaffed agencies by providing them with some of the most prepared, skilled and diverse individuals entering the legal community today. Below are responses to some of the most frequently asked questions about the fellowship program.
