HIRE A SOONER LAWYER

The Office of Career Development (CDO) at OU Law is designed to help employers of all sizes and practice areas with their recruiting needs. CDO staff can streamline the search for a law clerk or an associate through several resources and recruiting programs.

On-Campus Recruiting

The CDO hosts two formal recruiting programs each year, one in the fall and one in the spring.  Employers may opt to conduct interviews on campus, or simply perform a resume collection and schedule in-office interviews at their convenience.  When opting to participate in on-campus interviews, once the employer has selected its chosen candidates to interview, the CDO staff will schedule, facilitate and host all interviews at OU Law.
