To whom should I address my cover letter? (NALP)

Postby MonsterTRM » Fri Jan 11, 2013 12:17 pm

On the NALP website, you will find both a "Hiring Attorney" and a "Recruiting Contact." Should I address my cover letter to the hiring attorney or the other one?

Or is it worth a call into their office to determine who is the appropriate person?

I just addressed mine to the recruiting contact if listed, I think, as that is the person you will be mailing it to. It doesn't matter though.

Probably won't really matter, but if they put a recruiting contact on their NALP form, you can bet that person is the person who will be compiling the resumes/CLs. It would be kind of a dick move to just ignore them and address the letter to a partner.
