EIP Overview

EIP Overview

Harvard Law School’s Early Interview Program (“EIP”) provides employers with an unparalleled opportunity to recruit second and third year students at Harvard Law School.

Early Interview Program 2021

Our signature interview program, EIP Week, will take place virtually Tuesday, January 12 – Friday, January 15. During this four-day period employers will primarily interview 2Ls for their summer programs and some 3Ls for full-time jobs after graduation.

Changes to our Employer Recruiting Policies

In addition, we have revised our Employer Recruiting Policies and Guidelines. Some highlights include:

  • Reducing the offer period from 28 to 21 days;
  • Adding a 14-day offer period for offices with summer programs of fewer than 10 students; and
  • Reducing the number of offers a student can hold open from five to three.

We believe that these policy changes will result in an improved recruiting process that is more effective, transparent, and equitable for all participants.

Watch for additional information on updating your EIP registration and for opportunities on how to showcase your firm and to meet our students before EIP.
