In an effort to better serve our students, Harvard Law School hosts two separate databases that distinguish between private sector/judicial clerkship and public sector/government job opportunities.
*Please note that we do not accept postings from third parties including search firms.

Private Sector Employers/Judicial Clerkships

The HLS Job Bank, powered by Symplicity, is a simple, quick and effective way to recruit HLS students and alumni. After a one time registration, employers may post job openings online free of charge.
