Employers can schedule interviews on campus year round. During the Fall, employers can interview second year students for summer clerkships and third year students for employment after graduation. During the Spring, in addition to interviewing second and third year students, employers can interview first year students for summer clerkships.
For employers doing on-campus interviews the Career Services Office will collect resumes of interested, qualified students and send them to the employer before the visit. The Career Services Office then schedules interviews based on the employer's selections and timetable.
To set up On-Campus Interviews, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone: (478) 301-2615. Employers may also link to the Fall or Spring On-Campus Interview or Resume Forwarding Request Forms. Print and complete the appropriate Form and fax it to (478) 301-2287.
For employers who prefer to interview students in their own office, the Career Services Office will collect resumes from interested, qualified students and forward them to the employer. The Career Services Office will also assist in scheduling the students for interviews.
To arrange for Resume Forwarding, contact us via email at email@example.com or by phone at (478) 301-2615. Employers may also link to the Fall or Spring On-Campus Interview or Resume Forwarding Request Forms. Print and complete the appropriate Form and fax it to (478) 301-2287.
The Career Services Office maintains a posting of current positions for students and alumni on our web page. Employers can send us a notice and students and alumni can respond directly to the employer. The notice will remain posted for six weeks unless the employer notifies us that the position has been filled or asks us to keep it posted for a longer period of time. Employers wishing to post Job Announcements for Students or Alumni may do so FREE OF CHARGE by linking to Mercer Law School's Symplicity On-line Job Posting Database. A one-time registration will be required (at NO CHARGE). Alternatively, employers may email the posting information to firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at (478)301-2615 or fax us at (478) 301-2287. Employers may also link to a printable Job Posting Form. Please fax the completed Form to: (478) 301-2287.

Mercer Law School has long refrained from discriminating on the basis for race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, or sexual orientation. The policy of the Association of American Law Schools, required of all AALS-accredited law schools, reinforces our longstanding practice. A new AALS requirement, that we make our placement services available only to employers who assure us that they are willing to abide by this non-discrimination policy, was adopted by the Mercer Law Faculty on November 10, 1993. Accordingly, Mercer Law School does not make its interviewing facilities or job listing services available to employers who discriminate in the selection of employees on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, or sexual orientation or any other factor unrelated to an individual's capacity to perform lawyering tasks.
