Recruiting and hiring at ASU Law

The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University is the #1 law school in Arizona. We offer multiple ways for employers to engage or hire our students, including the traditional on-campus interview and our job board. Our goal is to facilitate connections between our law students, graduates and your organization through job postings, information sessions, events and more.

Our online job posting site, Atlas, is a great way to attract ASU Law students and alumni candidates by tailoring your job description to your exact needs. Establishing an Atlas account enables you to receive and manage resumes and other application materials at no cost.

Employers can connect with us through email or post a job directly on our job board. Connect with us at

General guidelines for the timing of offers

During the OCI process, students are scheduling call-back appointments with employers and often receive multiple offers of employment. They need time to carefully consider their options, including the salary, benefits, location, and culture of each firm.

We, as a law school, expect employers to allow students a reasonable amount of time to consider and accept offers. We believe that a reasonable amount of time is at least two weeks. Candidates are expected to accept or release offers or request an extension by the deadline.

We understand that there may be some cases where an employer needs to make a decision more quickly. In those cases, we ask that employers work with students to find a mutually agreeable timeline.

Annual employment recruiting events

The Career Services office offers a robust and comprehensive series of employment events annually beginning in January and running throughout the spring semester. All students, regardless of year, class rank or GPA are eligible to participate in any and all the events.

Principles of equal opportunity in hiring

The office of Career Services at ASU Law expects that prospective employers will provide ASU Law students and graduates with equal opportunity to obtain employment, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran's status, genetic information, gender identity or gender expression.  ASU Law does not make its services, interviewing facilities, or job posting and recruiting system available to employers who discriminate or segregate in their hiring on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran's status, genetic information, gender identity, gender expression or any other basis prohibited by applicable law. A limited exception to this policy exists for military recruiters, but only insofar as their employment and hiring practices are permitted under existing federal law.
