Recruitment Policies

Recruitment Policies

HLS maintains a strict no-prescreening policy, which means employers are not permitted to ask for resumes or transcripts in order to select students for interviews. Interviews are assigned by a lottery designed to maximize opportunities for both employers and students. Students can be asked to bring additional application documents (transcript & writing sample) to the interview. Cover letters requests are not accepted.

All employers participating in SIP will be expected to comply with Harvard Law School’s Recruitment Policies.
