On-Campus Interviewing or Legal Authority?
On-campus interviewing allows the largest firms to troll for what they define as the best candidates (i.e., those with the best grades, law review membership, and class rank). However, most law school graduates have the skills and knowledge to succeed in most firms. Very often, law firms consider potential additions to their firms when they receive a resume in the ''off-season''; namely, before or after the on-campus interviewing program. Also, many firms do not want to go through law schools' frustrating on-campus schedules or bear the expense and lost time of traveling to schools, and they simply fill their ranks with students who demonstrate the initiative to send them a resume.
Legal Authority literally gets thousands of law students jobs each year. We have helped law students from every American law school. Some of these law schools had on-campus interviewing programs and others did not (or had extremely limited ones). U.S. News and World Report statistics show that at many law schools, 60% of graduates are employed at graduation, and then 95%+ are employed within six months of graduation. Unfortunately, these attorneys that did not find employment before graduating are often getting positions that are last resorts more than conscious career choices-low-paying jobs or those that provide little chance of advancement.
Legal Authority ensures that law students and practicing attorneys realize their true market values because we assist them in contacting the segments of the market they are interested in, without relying on only the firms who choose to interview on campus or the firms recommended by their schools.
It is not surprising to hear that relatively few law students get positions through on-campus interviewing. Only a small cross-section of firms even interviews on campus at second-tier schools, and these are most likely local firms. Out of the firms that do interview on campus, an even smaller percentage is likely to do the type of work you want to do. And even if a given firm does practice the type of work you want, it is generally only seeking attorneys at the very top of most second-tier law school classes. As a result, the range of potential opportunities can tend to be quite limited.
In contrast, Legal Authority assists law students with contacting every single employer that does what they want to do. You will actually be contacting hundreds, even thousands, of available opportunities in the markets you choose. By following this route, you ensure that you have access to each and every opportunity possible and realize the greatest ''return'' possible, from both financial and psychological standpoints. By making every possible contact, you know that you have left no stone unturned.
Each day across the United States, law students get positions through Legal Authority. There is not a more effective means for law students to secure available positions than our service. We have seen so many law students succeed using our service that we often wonder what would have happened to the careers of these law students had they not used our service and instead continued following the ''traditional'' route. Compared to on-campus interviewing, our service is profoundly effective in ensuring that law students locate positions that best match their interests.
