This year NALP will once again make available to US law schools a survey to use with their second-year students who participated in OCI for a 2019 summer associate position with a law firm. The survey includes inquiries relating to the start of the job search, such as deciding which firms to pursue, and experiences with the screening interviews; experiences with the callback process; and how students decided on which offer to accept and how quickly they did so. To participate, click the text linked above. The actual survey link specific to your law school will be sent in October.
