Recruiting Seton Hall Law Students and Alumni
Seton Hall Law students not only know the law, they know the practice of law. They take what they learn in the classroom and prepare themselves for success by participating in multiple practical learning opportunities, ranging from our highly respected Skills program; to externships, clinics, and pro bono programs; to judicial externships and internships with government and public interest organizations.
The Office of Career Services operates two recruiting programs, each at no cost to employers, and invites employers seeking to fill positions for part-time, summer or full-time positions for current law students and graduates to participate in our On Campus Interview or Resume Referral Program. Employers may also post a role on our electronic job board.
On Campus Interviewing
Our On-Campus Interview Program allows employers to select the criteria, class year and application materials of the applicants they wish to see. We do not operate on a lottery system, but instead, offer all employers the opportunity to decide which students they would like to interview. Once you review the application materials, and select the applicants you wish to see, OCS will schedule the interviews for you. Our Fall On-Campus Interview Program begins in mid-Summer and runs through early November, and our Spring On-Campus Interview Program operates January through May.
Resume Referral Program
If you do not wish to conduct interviews on campus, you can register to particpate in our Resume Referral Program, which allows employers to select the criteria, class year, and application materials of applicants. OCS forwards the requested materials, and allows the employer to directly contact and schedule interviews with those applicants the employer is interested in meeting.

Seton Hall Law's students and alumni rely on the Job Posting section of our online Symplicity system to research job opportunities.

Seton Hall University, which includes Seton Hall University School of Law, has long been committed to a policy against discrimination in its admissions, financial aid, educational, extra-curricular, athletic or other programs or activities, or in any phase of its employment practices. The University does not discriminate consistent with the law against individuals on the basis of sex, age, gender, race, color, religion, national origin, affectional or sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and other legally protected categories. In addition to complying with all applicable federal and state laws regarding such conduct, the Law School subscribes to the University’s policies condemning discrimination and harassment, especially the University Policy Against Sexual Harassment and the University Racial and Ethnic Discrimination Policy.
A Note on Military Recruitment: The U.S. Armed Forces, due to its “Trans Ban” policy, does not comply with Seton Hall University’s Non-Discrimination Policy. Due to current law and regulations, specifically the Solomon Amendment, a law school which forbids the military to recruit on its campus in a manner equivalent to that offered to other employers, risks loss of federal funding both at the law school and at its parent university. At this time, the American Association of Law Schools has adopted a policy that recognizes the risk and permits law schools to have military recruiters on campus, provided that the school posts notices of the military’s failure to abide by its non-discrimination policy and takes other ameliorative action.
Character & Fitness
Consistent with its obligations on privacy of student records, the Law School cooperates with state Committees on Character and Fitness and similar authorities who pass on candidates for admission to the bar in all the states of the United States.
