Reciprocity

If you are a KU Law student/alum seeking employment in another state, reciprocity can allow you to access the Career Services Office of a law school in that state. Requests must be generated through our office. If you would like to request reciprocity, please use this form.

Our services are also made available to students/alumni whose law schools allow KU students/alumni use of their career services facilities. Non-KU Law students/alumni wishing to utilize our resources should contact their law school's Career Services Office and have them send a letter to us requesting reciprocity. It is important to remember that reciprocity policies can vary from school to school. If you have any questions or need additional information about reciprocity, please contact the Career Services Office.
