FIP Info for Employers
Yale students and graduates seek employment experiences both within and outside of the legal profession: in private practice, from large firms to solo practices; in federal, state and local government; in public interest settings, and in corporations and businesses; and in non-profit organizations.
How to Register for FIP:
1. Request a schedule using our website. If you are new to interviewing at Yale, you must first register on this website and then we will contact you with your username and password.
2. Private Employers: submit to our office a $100 nonrefundable registration fee (payable to Yale Law School), see address below. A schedule request and $100 registration fee must be submitted for each office conducting interviews separately. Private sector employers will also be charged an interview service fee after the program. Review the worksheet for more information. Interview Service Fee Sample Worksheet (private employers only)

Public interest employers: There is no charge for interviewing at Yale.
3. Complete an Interview Reservation Form. (THIS STEP IS NOT NECESSARY UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED CONFIRMATION OF YOUR DATE.) Although public interest and government employers will not be charged for interview rooms, all employers must reserve an interview room and any overnight accommodations.
We will send confirmation of interview dates on a rolling basis.
Yale Law School is committed to a policy against discrimination based upon age, color, handicap or disability, ethnic or national origin, race, religion, religious creed, gender (including discrimination taking the form of sexual harassment), marital, parental or veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or the prejudice of clients.
Employers participating in Yale Law School’s interview programs are required to agree to the Nondiscrimination Policy Statement when they request a schedule on the website.
Date Rotation System continues for FIP 2014
Yale Law School continues to utilize a date rotation system. Using the dates assigned last year, we will hence forth schedule returning FIP employers on a rotating basis so they are assigned the next consecutive day of the week from the prior year. For example, employers assigned Tuesday, August 13 last year, will be assigned Wednesday of the 2014 FIP program. Employers assigned Friday, August 16 last year, will be assigned Monday of the 2014 FIP Program. Our goal in making this change is to enable employers to plan their recruiting seasons with greater clarity about their Yale Law School interview dates. Employers will still need to complete online schedule requests through Symplicity.
