On-Campus Interview Program -- Fall 2014
Each year, the Law School sponsors a Fall on-campus recruitment program
for second- and third-year law students, often referred to as OCI.
During Fall OCI, many employers are focused on interviewing second-year law students for summer positions because the employers use their summer classes as a way to determine whether summer clerks will be offered full-time positions. However, the program is not only for 2L students. Some employers interview only 3Ls for permanent jobs. Occasionally, employers look for both summer clerks and full-time positions, so they allocate their interview slots to both 2Ls and 3Ls.
The first step to take, if you would like to participate in Fall OCI, is to review the information on this website,
and the one-page calendar, which sets forth all the important dates and deadlines. The
whole process begins while you are still away for the summer -- for
example, the first deadline for résumé submission and bidding is Wednesday, August 6, 2014, at 10:59 PM.
Wisconsin Public Interest Interview Program -- February 14 & 21, 2015
The University of Wisconsin Law School and Marquette University Law School jointly host the Wisconsin Public Interest Interview Program (PIIP). PIIP is a great opportunity for students to interview with multiple public interest and government employers for either paid or unpaid summer internships or permanent positions after graduation.
The 2015 PIIP is being held on the following two dates:
Saturday, February 14th at Marquette University Law School
Saturday, February 21st at the University of Wisconsin Law School
Participating employers select the single date and location most convenient for their organization and interviewers. Students from UWLS and MULS may interview on both dates at the specified law school. Students must submit their application materials by Tuesday, January 27, 2015.
On-Campus Interview Program -- Spring 2015
Fall On-Campus Interviews are not the only opportunity students have to interview on campus for Summer and full-time positions. The Office of Career and Professional Development will also coordinate a Spring OCI season, which will feature employers from the private, public interest, and government arenas. The deadlines for those OCI programs will be updated during Winter Break 2014, and we will send frequent emails to alert students about employers and resume submission deadlines.
