All job postings received by the Office of Career Services will be posted on Symplicity.com’s job board and are accessible, free-of-charge, to Howard Law graduates.

Your password link will be sent to you via email, along with instructions on how to access the job postings. Please read and follow the instructions carefully.

Once you set your password, please keep your information confidential – your password should not be shared!

If you have problems in navigating the website or previously requested a password and have not yet received it, please contact us immediately!


2. HOWARD LAW ALUMNI JOB BULLETIN & LAW GRADUATE BULLETINS FROM OTHER JURISDICTIONS
The Howard University School of Law Alumni Job Bulletin will continue to be published each month and posted on the following intercollegiate job bank website:
https://www.law2.byu.edu/Career_Services/jobbank/
From the home page, select “Washington, DC” from the state drop down box. The Howard bulletin can be selected from the results. Please note that you can also search for graduate jobs in all other jurisdictions from the above website!


*Please contact the Office of Career Services at:
careerservices@law.howard.edu for the username and password.




3. RECIPROCITY SERVICES
If you are searching for employment outside of the Washington, DC area, and wish to visit another law school to review job postings or have electronic access to job postings, you must first request the Office of Career Services to send a letter requesting reciprocity on your behalf. Please provide several days’ notice; same day requests cannot be processed.

Once the letter from HUSL is sent to the law school, you must wait for that school to grant permission to the request. You will be unable to visit that school’s office before you receive permission. Also note that most schools restrict reciprocity between the months of August and October/November – the peak times for most on-campus recruiting.

Finally, you must limit your request for reciprocity to one school per city.

4. NATIONAL DIRECTORY OF LEGAL RECRUITERS
The National Directory of Legal Recruiters (all major U.S. cities) is available at http://www.law.howard.edu/1370.

5. GRADUATE COVER LETTERS AND RESUMES
Sample graduate cover letters and resumes are available upon request.

Please provide your name, address, and year of graduation when making a request for a cover letter or resume handout.
