Reciprocity Policy

The University of Virginia School of Law career development offices provide reciprocity to students and graduates in good standing of other ABA accredited law schools, provided that: 

  • the law school making the request for reciprocity has a policy providing similar assistance to Virginia students or graduates; and 
  • requests are made in writing by the student or graduate’s law school to Career Development in advance of the student or graduate's visit to the Law School.

Career Development reserves the right to deny reciprocity to individuals who misuse its facilities. According to an agreement among the six state law schools, reciprocity will not be granted to individuals who have already been granted reciprocity by George Mason University Law School, T. C. Williams School of Law, Washington & Lee University Law School, Marshall Wythe School of Law of the College of William & Mary, or Regent University College of Law and Government. Career Development reserves the right to limit the scope of services provided to conform to the policy of the requesting school.

Persons granted reciprocity may confer with a counselor of our designation, but may not participate in on-campus interviews. Information from our online system regarding local jobs will be provided to the student, but broad access to the online system will not be provided. 

No reciprocity will be granted during the main recruitment period, June 1 to October 31.
