matching law students and graduates to your hiring needs

Employers at a Career Services Event

While each year hundreds of employers recruit from Boston College Law School, our recruitment efforts are customized to meet your needs. Whether you are looking for law students for summer or part-time internships, or for full-time post-graduate or other alumni hires, we can assist you at every stage throughout the year.

BC Law also offers students the opportunity to receive credit for academic year externships at public and private placements through the Clinical Externship Program.

Six Ways to Recruit 

  • Resume Collections:  Our office promotes the opportunity and collects student applications.  Once your application deadline has passed, the Career Services office will review the applicants and forward resumes to you of interested students.  You then have the choice to invite select students to your office for interviews/phone screenings, or to have our office coordinate interviews for you on campus.  We can also discuss which students meet your hiring criteria.  To receive this service, visit our Symplicity site.
  • Job Postings:  You receive applications directly.  Email your posting to law.career@bc.edu.
  • On-Campus Recruitment:  Enables you to screen a larger number of candidates in either a full or half-day setting in our onsite interview rooms.  One full day on-campus interview schedule can accommodate up to 20 students.  All applicant selections are determined by you based upon your review of the applicant resume and other materials (100% pre-select).  Our office coordinates all interview schedule logistics.  Please note that our largest on-campus interview week is held in early to mid-August each year and there is a registration fee.  We also host employers for on-campus interviews at other times throughout the fall and spring semesters.  
  • Government/Public Interest Recruitment:  With the Massachusetts Law School Consortium, we sponsor two government/public interest career recruitment programs. The first is hosted on our campus in October and the second is hosted by Suffolk Law School in January.  Visit the consortium's website for more information.    
  • Regional Recruitment Programs:  Boston College Law School is a member of The Law School Consortium. Through the Consortium, we participate in late July/early August recruitment programs in major US cities including Washington, DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Philadelphia.  Consortium law schools include Boston University, George Washington, Northwestern University, Notre Dame, and the University of Texas.  We also co-sponsor a recruitment program in New York each year with Boston University.  Visit the consortium's website for more information.
  • Resident Attorney Program: Provides an opportunity for private sector employers to hire a recent Boston College Law School graduate  full-time for one year. BC Law promotes the opportunity to interested students and works closely with you on the recruitment process.
