GGU's Fall and Spring Recruitment Programs are a great way to plan ahead and recruit first and second-year law students for summer positions or hire graduating students for temporary post-bar clerkships or permanent attorney positions. Employers can either interview students at GGU during a pre-arranged block of time (On-CampusInterviews) or at their office (Application Collect). Either way, there is no charge to employers to participate in the program, and employers have complete control over which students they end up interviewing.
