Reciprocity Policy

Reciprocity is either our agreement or the agreement of another law institution to allow graduates to use the job search resources available in the Office of Career Development & Opportunities. Utilizing the reciprocity agreement with other law schools is a wonderful job search tool when you are looking for employment in another city or geographic region of the country. It is important to understand that each law school has its own reciprocity requirements. Before requesting reciprocity, please contact the host school to confirm their current reciprocity policy.

As a University of Denver College of Law student/alumnus requesting reciprocity at another law school you must contact a Office of Career Development & Opportunities representative by calling 303-871-6124. When calling please provide the name of the school you are requesting reciprocity at, your name, address, and phone number. Be sure to request reciprocity at least one week before leaving town, if not sooner. This gives both our office as well as the career services office of the host school time to process your request. You will receive a copy of the reciprocity request letter and a copy of the host school’s response granting or denying reciprocity. If you are granted reciprocity be sure to show your copy of the acceptance letter when you arrive at the host school.

  1. The University of Denver Sturm College of Law Office of Career Development & Opportunities offers reciprocity to students and graduates of ABA-accredited law schools.

  4. Reciprocity is not available from August 1 through November 15.
