WHY HIRE CUNY LAW STUDENTS?
We find future lawyers we know stand to bring invaluable perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, and commitment to the field and train them to be outstanding. Our mission to transform the face of the profession to be more diverse means we offer employers a distinct opportunity to join our vision for inclusion and representative justice.
Post a job. Register with our Symplicity password-protected database and you will see your listing appear within 48 hours. When submitting an open position, you may request that we collect application materials for you or instruct candidates to send their materials to you directly. We also accept confidential listings.
On-Campus Interviewing. You’re invited to participate in interviews on-campus through our On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) Program, or throughout the school year. We can also collect resumes for you from interested students and send them to you in one package. You may register through Symplicity or by using our online registration form.
Find an Intern or Fellow. CUNY Law students and recent grads look for summer opportunities to put their public interest skills to work across New York City and around the globe. Their hands-on training—in the best clinical program in the country—and passion for transforming justice set them apart from their peers.

Employers must also abide by the National Association for Law Placement principles. Employers are referred to the City University of New York Non-Discrimination Policy.
