Employers

HIRE A LEGAL EAGLE

Welcome to North Carolina Central University School of Law!  Our Office for Career Services welcomes you to recruit talented, practice-ready students to work for you.

Recruitment


We want to make your recruitment at North Carolina Central University School of Law as easy as possible.  Employers do not pay any fees to participate to recruit at our law school including no charge to participate during our On-Campus Interviewing programs.  We offer you a number of recruitment options:

  • On-Campus Interviewing (Fall and Spring):  Employers register to interview students on campus for internships or summer associate positions.  2L/3LE and 3L/4LE interviews may take place in the Fall and Spring semesters.  1L/2LE interviews take place during the Spring semester only.   The application process takes place via Symplicity.
  • Resume Collections (Year round):  If you are unable to participate in our On-Campus Interview Program in person, you may request that we collect resumes online for distribution to you for one of your positions.  This process also takes place via Symplicity.
  • Job Postings (Year round):  At any time during the year, you may post positions for any student grade level and for our alumni.  We will post the positions to Symplicity but you have the flexibility to receive the applications via Symplicity or directly from students by email or any other means you designate.
  • Career and Job Fairs (Specified dates):  We host two NCCU-only job fairs during the academic year–Military/JAG (Fall) and Public Interest (Spring).  We can accommodate you as an interviewing employer or as an information-only employer.

In order to participate, please register as an employer via Symplicity.  If you have any questions about registering or using Symplicity, please contact Stephanie T. Williams at stwilliams@nccu.edu or 919-530-7701.

Our Students


Practice Ready.  Our students are practice ready.  Many participate in our nationally recognized clinical programs, participate in internships and externships with judges and justices, district attorneys, public defenders, private practitioners and corporations throughout the school year and during their summers.  NCCU was ranked fifth in Clinical Programs by National Jurist Magazine for 2014.

Writing and Advocacy.  Many of our students are members of the North Carolina Central Law Review and the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Law Review.  Beginning in first year, our students participate in the advocacy thing and continue with Moot Court through their balance of their law school careers.

Community and Public Service.  Our students are active in the community and provide hundreds of hours of pro bono service through student organizations.

 

Location


 

We are located in Durham, North Carolina, easily accessible from I-85, I-40 and I-540.   We are also located within 30 minutes of three other North Carolina law schools which makes it feasible to coordinate on-campus interviews and recruitment visits with one trip.  We are more than happy to coordinate your visit with other law school visits.
