What is the law school enrollment letter/ proof of seat deposit? Is it the form that I sent with the deposit to my law school of choice, or is it something else?

Thanks


Pretty much. There's no one standard form to my knowledge. I would take the form you sent to the school, take the acceptance letter, and send them to SEO.



Thanks :D

LOL, for those accepted be sure to actually submit your enrollment form. When I got the call last week I was so excited and since my interviewer asked if I'd be coming that I completely forgot to check whether I had to formally accept. When your status changes you've got to make certain to verify that. They may have told others, I was in class when I got the call so I got off pretty quickly.

It seems that the start date has been changed to June. In the housing information packet it says that Corporate Law interns don't have to be in NYC until June for orientation so the May 25 date is no longer the orientation date. Did anyone else who has already been accepted get this packet with this info?

Don't think I've gotten that packet yet but I had a feeling this was going to be the case. It just made logical sense. That works for me! Might even have time to make it to some extra music festivals. :lol: Glad they did the sensible thing and didn't put extra pressure on themselves just to adhere to past standards. I never understand why people as a species are so adverse to variable schedules, but I've had a different lifestyle than many so I can empathize with it.

I think they mean the enrollment form for SEO ...not your seat deposit for law school

Any accepted SEO folks want to join a private FB group? SEO wouldn't be opposed to us getting acquainted or coordinating housing plans, would they?

Reached out to them, and it appears that Orientation is, in fact, on May 25th as it says on the website. The enrollment packet was messed up. They really can't push back the start dates-- it's not up to them, it's up to the firms.

Thanks for the info! I was going to contact them to see if in fact it had been changed to June. Oh well, May 25th works for me anyways. They should send out another email though correcting the packet info.

I read that in the packet as well, but I still think orientation is May 25. I could be wrong, but during my follow-up interview my interviewer assured me that May 25 was the start date.

Ughh, can't wait to hear back!

Does anyone know the exact time schedule for the program? How long will we be working, and when does it end?

I am interested in this as well. The most recent letter said that a summer schedule is forthcoming.

The program begins May 25 with orientation in New York (some firms may begin even earlier than that) and ends August 10 at the completion of CLI. This information came from my follow-up interview and is also on the website.

Yea they sent an email, I stand corrected. They know their position better than I do so if they will be ready by then I trust that they will. I secretly was just hoping for one last music festival :lol: But in any case I'm excited about firm placement, does anyone know the timeline on that? Can't really find it in the past pages.

Also, does anyone know what they have an interest in already? Doing some research before law school and even moreso before the interview, I became interested in maybe doing cross border transactional work, so that would be cool to get some experience and see what that's like if Im fortunate enough this summer.

Firm placement by the end of next week (May 11), also from my follow-up interview. May be as soon as next Monday though.
