Reciprocity Information

Reciprocity Policy

The Professional Development Office at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law provides career resource assistance to students and graduates of accredited law schools that, in turn, offer similar services to our students and graduates.

The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law shares its full list of job postings with the BYU Intercollegiate Job Bulletin Bank at the beginning of every month.  We encourage our students and alums to first view the listings there  and determine whether that resource is sufficient before requesting reciprocity.  We request that students and alums of other schools do the same before requesting reciprocity through our school. 

Requests for services must be made by a career services-office official, via email, stating the student/alumni’s date of graduation.  Such requests should also provide an address/email address for the student/alumni, who should then wait for a copy of our written response before contacting this office.  This office will communicate with the requesting school only, but will send a copy of the grant or denial to the requesting student or alumni if that information is provided.  Please instruct your students and graduates not to contact our office directly.  After receiving the acceptance letter, the student/graduate may contact our office.  All requests are evaluated individually; a grant of reciprocity is not guaranteed. 

  • Services are available to students and graduates of those ABA-accredited law schools that allow S.J. Quinney College of Law students and graduates similar services.  Reciprocity will be granted on a one-for-one basis.  A request for reciprocity from another law school must be matched by a request for reciprocity from our school before a second request will be considered.  A request for renewal will be treated as a new request. 
  • Reciprocity does not include participation in on-campus interviewing; individual career counseling; resume review, or borrowing books from our office. 
  • Reciprocity will be granted for a period of three months, or until August 1st, whichever occurs first.  Reciprocity is closed between August 1 through November 1, and during any time during which the requesting law school has closed reciprocity.  The S.J. Quinney College of Law reserves the right to deny reciprocity when/if it determines there is a large imbalance of outgoing versus incoming requests. 
  • The Professional Development Office may restrict or revoke reciprocity privileges to any individual who misuses the facilities or services. 
  • Please email your requests to careers@law.utah.edu.
