Fall & Spring Interview Overview


Fall Interview Program

The Fall Interview Program is the larger of CDO’s two interview programs, and provides a great avenue for employers to recruit upperclass students at YLS for summer and permanent employment.  All recruiting fees are waived for public interest employers.

Yale Law School invites you to participate in our Fall 2015 Interview Program (FIP), which will take place August 10 through August 14, 2015.

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.

Nondiscrimination Policy
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.

Yale Law School continues to utilize a date rotation system. Using the dates assigned last year, we will henceforth 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 12 last year, will be assigned Wednesday of the 2015 FIP program. Employers assigned Friday, August 15 last year, will be assigned Monday of the 2015 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.

 

Spring Interview Program

The Spring Interview Program is primarily a first-year recruiting event and provides a unique opportunity for employers to interview YLS students early in their law school careers, to present their summer programs and goals, and to establish working relationships.
