On-Campus Interviews (OCI) Information

What is OCI?

OCI stands for On-Campus Interviews. Every fall and spring, Pacific McGeorge invites legal employers to campus to interview 2D/3E and 3D/4E students for summer and post-graduation jobs.

Pacific McGeorge's OCI program is a unique hybrid of private and public employers of all sizes. Our OCI employers have a wide variety of GPA and class rank requirements, thereby allowing all of our students the opportunity to participate.

Our program consists of the traditional OCI format, where law firms come to the McGeorge campus to interview students who have certain qualifications. It is also comprised of employers from a wide range of legal sectors that do not necessarily have class rank or GPA requirements. These sectors include JAG, government agencies, DA/PD offices, small- and mid-sized general practice law firms, and boutique firms focused on particular practice areas such as intellectual property, land use, and water law. We draw employers from the local Sacramento area, the entire Central Valley, and throughout California and Nevada.

OCI is convenient! With the streamlined application process on McGeorgeCareersOnline https://law-pacific-csm.symplicity.com/students/, and the interviews held right here on campus, this is an opportunity not to miss. This program is a great tool, among many [See 24/7 Career Resources http://www.mcgeorge.edu/Students/Career_Development_Office/247_Career_Resources.htm] that you should utilize in your search for jobs and internships.

Spring OCI 2015 at Pacific McGeorge is right around the corner [link to the dates and deadlines page]! Private firms, non-profit, government and public-sector; they're all coming to McGeorge to meet you. The list of employers can be found on McGeorgeCareersOnline https://law-pacific-csm.symplicity.com/students/ under the OCI tab.
