Career Services: Reciprocity Policy
It is our policy to assist students and graduates of ABA accredited law schools who are relocating to Maine and seeking legal employment provided that their law schools will likewise assist our students and graduates.
We ask that permission for reciprocity be secured in advance by a letter from the appropriate Placement or Career Services Director. The student or graduate should then contact our office to schedule his or her visit. Reciprocity will be granted for a period of six months. Extensions of the six month period will require another letter from the Career Services office of the student’s or graduate’s own law school.
Reciprocal services include access to our online career services management system (Symplicity), the use of the Career Services Office for reviewing selected job postings, library materials and employer files. Reciprocal services do not include participation in on-campus interviews.
Counseling services on regional employment information may be available to the student or graduate by appointment, provided in-kind services from the reciprocating law school are offered and subject to staff availability. If such services are available, the student or graduate should bring a copy of his or her résumé to the scheduled appointment.
Reciprocity will not be granted during the autumn recruitment season, which runs from July 15 to November 1.
Please contact the Career Services Office with any questions.
