Reciprocity

Postby kalvano » Thu Feb 09, 2012 12:47 am

Anyone every do this, where another law school will let you look at their online job postings, and have access to their career services information?

Is it worth doing?

would certainly be worth doing if you're from a better law school and can see the jobs posted to inferior law schools in the market you're targeting

but I don't know if reciprocity lets you do that, I think it's just for shitty access to materials produced by that office? like password-protected career manuals?

Why don't you just ask a TLSer at the school in question?

It lets you access Symplicity job postings, but view-only. You can't apply via them, but I would like to see what is being posted.

My only issue is that one of the schools requires a $75 fee for access, which seems kind of bogus.

None of the areas are really rife with TLS people.

Besides, I prefer to make Career Services do some work, if if can.

If it's like my school, the reciprocity services are minimal (use of the physical books in OCS). Most schools seem to limit it to other schools in their region/rank area, so unless you've found some school significantly above yours or in your target region, I wouldn't bother. Certainly not to pay $75 for.
