Career Development Office Reciprocity
Reciprocity privileges are available only to 3D/4E students and alumni. These privileges enable you to gain access to job postings at law schools outside the Baltimore-Washington D.C. region. To request reciprocity, contact
Law Schools requesting reciprocity privileges for their students or alumni must contact Terri Goode, Recruitment Coordinator, at 410-706-2080,
. Please review the reciprocity policy below.
- Reciprocity privileges will be considered only for ABA-accredited law schools outside the state of Maryland on a one-to-one basis per student. Therefore, when reciprocity is granted, we will allow one non-Maryland third-year student or graduate to use our office for every third-year student or graduate of our school who uses the Career Services office of the requesting law school. When there is a request for reciprocity with more than one school in any given state, we will request reciprocity with one school at a time, when the term of reciprocity expires with that individual school.
- Requests for reciprocity services must be made by a Career Services official of the requesting law school. Requests may also be faxed or sent via e-mail. Please provide the individual’s name, address, and dates the student/graduate plans to visit or request e-mail access to job bank listings. Additionally, please provide your student/graduate with copies of our written response. The individual must wait for a copy of our written response before contacting this office. If reciprocity is granted, the individual must bring a copy of the letter when visiting and check in with the Reciprocity Coordinator upon arrival; or attach our letter to any e-mail request for access to job listings.
- Reciprocity privileges to use our office will be granted for 2 months and may be renewed twice during an academic year.
- Reciprocity is granted from the date that our office responds to the letter of introduction sent by the requesting law school. Reciprocity is not available during the period of July 31 through November 1. During this period, use of the Career Development Office is reserved for students and graduates of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
- Reciprocity includes access to the Career Development Office’s Resource Library and access to current job posting. If reciprocity has been granted by this law school, the individual may not request reciprocity from or use the services of the University of Baltimore School of Law Career Services Office during the period of reciprocity.
- When responding to job postings accessed from our job bank, individuals are required to state in cover letters to employers that the job listings were obtained through a reciprocal agreement with the individual's law school and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
- The following services are not available as reciprocity privileges: participation in on-campus interview or off-campus regional interview programs, resume collections or referrals, access to blind job postings, or access to counselors or counseling advice.
- The Career Development Office may deny privileges to any individual who misuses its facilities or services, or to any law school surpassing a reasonable number of reciprocity requests within any academic year.
