On Campus Interview (OCI) Employer Policies & Procedures

The On Campus Interview (OCI) program provides employers the opportunity to interview current University of Wyoming College of Law students for immediate, summer, and postgraduate positions. For Fall 2019, interviews may be scheduled on weekdays from September 3rd through September 27th, 2019. Due to our small class size, most interview schedules can be accommodated with half-day schedules.  We are also able to accommodate teleconference and videoconference interview requests.  If you prefer to simply receive resumes, you can participate by requesting a Resume Collect.  All participating employers’ opportunities will be posted in UW POKES Portal under the OCI tab, which will become available for student viewing and application submission.  Please return the OCI Request form online as soon as your organization determines its needs. To be eligible to participate in Fall 2019 OCI, students must:

  • Be a current student of the law school in good standing.

  • Have a resume which reflects their current class year and expected graduation date. It is highly encouraged that this resume also include the cumulative law school GPA and class rank.  Applicants may still choose to submit an alternate resume.

Policies & Procedures
The University of Wyoming College of Law greatly values our relationships with organizations that support, recruit and hire UW Law students. These Policies & Procedures ensure the highest levels of professionalism, fairness, and opportunity for all members of the Wyoming Law Community involved in these activities, including current students, future students, alumni, and employers. The Policies & Guidelines also incorporate the National Association for Law Placement’s (NALP) Principles for a Fair and Ethical Recruitment Process.

General Provisions

  1. All offers to law student candidates, whether for summer employment or full-time employment following graduation, should remain open for at least two weeks (14 days) after the date of the written offer.

    a. An employer should confirm every offer in writing, with all relevant details. The offer letter date serves as the effective offer date for all timelines and deadlines.

    b. Employers should grant reasonable requests for extensions to students to whom they have extended offers.

    c. Students should respond to offers earlier than this deadline if possible.

  2. Employers should let students know their hiring decisions within a reasonable window after conducting interviews, no later than 30 days.

  3. To be eligible to participate in Fall OCI, students must have completed their first year of law school. Dates for Spring OCI will be determined the preceding fall. In addition to current 2L and 3L students, 1L students will be eligible to participate in Spring OCI opportunities if your organization is interested.

Given the small size of the Office of Career Services & Professional Development (OCSPD) staff, the offer windows stated above will provide the time for candidates to thoughtfully consider offers and consult with OCSPD staff, College of Law administrators and faculty about their options.

Compliance

By participating in the College of Law’s OCI program, the organization is agreeing to comply with these provisions. Organizations not complying with the above rules may be subject to Law School-imposed recruiting restrictions.

UW College of Law Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

The University of Wyoming (UW) College of Law and the OCSPD are committed to a policy of equal opportunity employment and non-discrimination. Any employer that discriminates for the purposes of hiring on the basis of race, sex, gender, color, religion, national origin, marital status, disability, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, genetic information, political belief, or other status protected by state and federal statutes, or University Regulations is prohibited from using the facilities and services of the OCSPD. Please find the full EEO/ Non-Discrimination Policy on our website.

Dates for Spring OCI will be determined in the Fall prior.  In addition to current 2L and 3L students, 1L students will be eligible to participate in Spring OCI opportunities if your organization is interested. 

Please contact Ashli Tomisich, Director of Career & Professional Development, with any questions.
