Reciprocity allows St. Mary’s University School of Law students to utilize limited career-related resources from other law schools’ career services offices throughout the country as described in their policies. Reciprocity also allows students from other law schools to access similar resources from St. Mary’s University School of Law’s Office of Career Services based on the policy outlined below.
Current St. Mary’s students and alumni may request reciprocity with another school by filling out the form below.
The St. Mary’s University School of Law Office of Career Services grants reciprocal services to students and graduates of ABA-accredited law schools which afford reciprocal services to St. Mary’s students and graduates. The Office of Career Services reserves the right to adjust the above-stated policy to match other school’s policies and with or without notice may deny further services to any individual who misuses or abuses the staff, facilities, resources, equipment or services, or to any school surpassing a reasonable number of requests within any academic year.
If you have any questions, please call 210-436-3511. The Office of Career Services, St. Mary’s University School of Law, reserves the right to match the terms and restrictions of the school requesting reciprocity on behalf of its graduates or students.
If you would like to establish reciprocity with St. Mary’s University School of Law, contact the Career Services Office of your law school and request that a letter be sent by email to our office with a copy of your school reciprocity policy. (Reciprocity will be granted only twice to the same person within a three-year time period.)
