Reciprocity Policy

Seton Hall University School of Law is available to students and graduates of other law schools under the following terms and conditions:

  1. Reciprocal services are available on a one-to-one basis to graduates and students of all ABA-accredited law schools who permit Seton Hall University School of Law students and alumni the use of their services.
  2. Requests for reciprocity must be made in writing by the Office of Career Services from the requesting law school. All students/graduates who are granted reciprocity privileges must bring their approval letter from Seton Hall for security purposes. Please call our office before each visit. Walk-in requests will not be honored! Students/graduates must also check in at the Security Desk and with the Office of Career Services each visit.
  3. Students/Graduates will have 3 visits to use within a 3 month period, beginning with the date of first visit. The office will remain open to reciprocity visitors until our “blackout periods” for Spring OCI from February 1st through April 5th and for Fall OCI from July 1st through November 15th. Upon written request and review, reciprocity is renewable.
  4. Reciprocity services will include access to in-office resources only! Visitors may review current job openings listed with the Career Services Office provided that the school seeking reciprocity allows Seton Hall University School of Law students/graduates the same privileges. Visitors can not participate in any of the recruiting programs, be granted individual career counseling appointments or resume review or electronic access to databases.
  5. Individuals granted reciprocity must comply with all University Rules and Regulations during their visit.
  6. Reciprocity is a privilege! Seton Hall University School of Law’s Office of Career Services reserves the right to decline requests for reciprocity services if the number of students and alumni from other schools using our services exceeds a reasonable amount.
  7. If any foreseen problems arise with a reciprocity recipient, we reserve the right to notify the requesting school and terminate his/her privileges.


The Office of Career Services will provide Seton Hall University School of Law students and graduates with one letter requesting reciprocity at another law school within a two-month period. This limitation is necessary to allow as many of our students and graduates as possible access to other schools’ career services offices. Requests for reciprocity should be made well in advance of the intended visit.
