Requesting Reciprocity

Instructions to Request Reciprocity (Texas Law Students)

If you are a Texas Law student or alumnus, the CSO will facilitate reciprocity requests from other ABA-accredited law school that accord reciprocal services to Texas Law. This is a very formal process that goes between one career office to another. Do not contact the school you are seeking reciprocity without as the initial contact should come from the CSO.

  • Each law school has their own policies and procedures regarding reciprocity. For instance, the vast majority of schools will require you to be physically present at their institution in order to obtain access to their job bank. Please check each school’s website to see about their guidelines (reciprocity policies of the NALP member law schools).
  • Please note that the South Texas College of Law, Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law, and University of Houston Law Center will honor a request to only one of these schools in the Houston area. Arizona law schools generally will not grant reciprocity due to the high volume of requests that they receive.
  • Submit your request online for up to four law schools throughout Texas and the U.S. at a time once you have reviewed each school’s reciprocity policy.

Instructions to Request Reciprocity to Visit the Texas Law CSO

The University of Texas School of Law Career Services Office grants reciprocal services (see CSO Reciprocity Policy) to students and graduates of ABA-accredited law schools that accord reciprocal services to Texas Law students and graduates. In the case of schools that only permit reciprocity on a one-to-one basis, we will limit the number of referrals in the same manner.

If you would like to establish reciprocity with The University of Texas School of Law, contact the career services office of your law school and request a letter be sent by email to the CSO at
