The Career Services Office invites employers to conduct interviews at the Thomas R. Kline School of Law of Duquesne University during the fall and spring semesters. The on-campus recruitment program, known as OCI, allows employers to meet with a large number of candidates during a relatively short period of time. The service is open to all employers - private firms, judges, government agencies, corporations, academic institutions, and public interest organizations.

Interviews may be scheduled on-campus at the law school, at the employer's office, or virtually, according to the employer's preference.

Fall 2023 Recruitment Program
Interviews will be held from July 31 - November 10, 2023.  Employers are invited to complete an online registration form.  Upon receipt, the CSO will confirm your registration via email.

Spring 2024 Recruitment Program
Registration for the Spring 2024 Recruitment will begin in late 2023.

The Duquesne Kline Law Alumni Association and Career Services Office host an annual Interview & Career Expo during the Spring semester.  Registration for the 2024 Expo will open in early 2024.

Employers are invited to interview law students for their summer or longer-term hiring needs.  We’ll collect applications for your review and then schedule interviews with the candidates you would like to meet.  In-person interviews will be held at the law school, and virtual interviews can be scheduled upon request.

If you’re not hiring at the time of the Interview & Career Expo, but you would like to meet students for future hiring needs, we invite you to join us for Table Talk sessions where you can meet with students informally.   Employers participating in Table Talk sessions will have space in the common areas of the law school.

This event provides employers with an excellent opportunity to recruit for law clerk, internship, and entry-level attorney positions, as well as meet potential candidates for future recruiting needs.
