Harvard Law School (HLS) hosts multiple on-campus interview (OCI) programs throughout the year. All OCI programs offer the option of 20- or 30-minutes interviews. An interview schedule consisting of 20-minute interviews allows for 20 interview slots while an interview schedule consisting of 30-minute interviews allows for 13 interview slots. If your organization is unable to send a recruiter to Cambridge for our OCI programs, we encourage you to register for our Resume Collection Program.
