Since 2014, Stanford Law School's Black Law Students Association (BLSA) has hosted a diversity career event each spring. The student board members invite employers to come meet with students as a networking opportunity. This also allows students to learn more about the employer in advance of OCI. Stanford Law School students are also invited to participate in the Bay Area Diversity Career Fair each summer in San Francisco. This career fair attracts hiring representatives from the most prominent law firms, government legal departments, and nonprofit organizations.

For Employers who do not interview students on-campus, will you:

send, upon request, one package containing resumes/transcripts? No
post a notice directing students to apply directly to employer? Yes

If you provide job listings for graduates, describe how to send notice, when employers can expect responses, length of time notice is posted (whether in print or online), etc.
If employers have job openings --whether for summer, part-time or post-graduation-- we encourage them to post their positions on our online jobs board (Symplicity): If the employer is new to recruiting at SLS and has never posted a job with us before, the recruiter will first have to register by providing basic contact information for the company or organization.

FIRST-YEAR STUDENT Describe any special regulations pertaining to the recruitment of first year students. For example, are first year students eligible for spring OCI? When are job notices posted during second semester?
First year students have the opportunity of participating in the spring OCI program each January. Job notices may be posted for first year students using Symplicity.
