Reciprocity Policy

Reciprocity allows students and graduates from other schools to use certain services of USD School of Law Career Services. To be granted reciprocity to USD School of Law, Career Services contact your law career services office with your request. Please do not contact our office directly. Inform your career services office that, when sending your request, emails to lawcareers@sandiego.edu are preferred but faxes to (619) 260-6828 are also accepted.

USD will communicate the acceptance or denial of your request with the requesting school only. A copy of the acceptance or denial will be sent to you if an email address is provided.

Prior to your visit, USD School of Law Career Services must receive a letter or email from your law school. NO DROP-INS—NO EXCEPTIONS. There is no need to carry a copy of the request letter, but visitors MUST bring ID and check in at the Career Services front desk at each visit. To schedule an appointment email Career and Professional Development or call (619) 260-4529.
