Duke Law students have been charting their employment course and laying the foundation for their job search since the first day of law school. Our students are counseled closely to define their goals and to think about their skills, knowledge and passions and how they can fit into a fulfilling professional life. The CPDC offers several opportunities for employers to engage Duke Students in their recruitment efforts.
Duke Law’s OCI program consists of three segments for interviewing rising 2Ls and 3Ls. Segment I will be held July 29 - August 1, 2019 at the Washington Duke Inn. Segment II and Government & Public Interest OCI will be held at the law school, with interviews starting on August 26, 2019. Registration for 2019 OCI will open in February 2019 via Symplicity. Learn more about Fall OCI here.
Resume Collects and Virtual Recruiting
If you are unable to attend OCI but would like to collect applications from rising 2L and rising 3L students at Duke Law, you may register for a summer resume collect under the OCI tab in Symplicity starting in late February each year. Summer resume collects are addressed by students as part of OCI, with deadlines available in June and July.
Resume Collect packets will be available after 1pm ET on the day of your selected deadline. There is no fee to participate. Employers who wish to conduct video interviews with resume collect candidates may contact Susan Anderson for assistance. Learn more about resume collects here.
