Career Services maintains the following reciprocity policy:

  • Reciprocal services are available on a one-to-one basis to students and graduates of other ABA-accredited/NALP member law schools who permit Georgia State Law students and graduates use of their services. Reciprocity will only be granted to one law school in the state of Georgia.
  • Requests for reciprocity must be made in writing by a Career Services official two weeks prior to any visit. Requests must include contact information for the student/graduate, including address, and whether requesting in-office or online job-posting access. The student/graduate should wait for a copy of our written response before contacting this office. No walk-ins or phone requests will be considered.
  • Reciprocity is granted for a period of three months and will expire on the date listed in the letter granting reciprocity. If a student is requesting online access, his or her reciprocity will start the day payment is received. A request for renewal will be treated as a new request.
  • Reciprocity is not available during fall on-campus recruitment (Aug. 1 through Nov. 1).
  • Reciprocity services include in-office access to employment listings and review of materials in the Career Services Resource Center or the option to access our job postings online for a $25 fee.
  • Services don’t include participation in on-campus interviews, job fairs, employer mailings, resume referral or counseling. All students/graduates granted reciprocity must sign in at the Career Services reception desk to have in-office access.
  • Applicants who are granted reciprocity must state in cover letters to employers that the job listings were provided by Georgia State University College of Law’s Career Services Office through a reciprocal agreement with their school. Failure to comply will result in revocation of reciprocity privileges.
  • Subscription to the monthly E-Graduate Job Bulletin is available to graduates of other law schools at any time. The cost is $30 for a six-month subscription.
  • Fees for online job posting access or job bulletin subscriptions must be paid by check. Checks should be made payable to: Georgia State University College of Law, Career Services Office, P.O. Box 4037, Atlanta, GA 30302-4037.
