Reciprocity Policy

The Office of Career Services (OCS) at UCLA School of Law will allow its resources to be used by students and alumni of non-UC law schools.

To Request Reciprocity:
  • All requests must be emailed from the student's or graduate's career services office to Sombra Ruiz at ruiz@law.ucla.edu.
  • UCLA OCS will communicate with the requesting school only, but will send a copy of the grant or denial to the requestor if contact information is provided. Please instruct your students or graduates not to contact UCLA directly.
Reciprocity Limitations:
  • All requests are evaluated individually; a grant of reciprocity is not guaranteed.
  • Reciprocity will be granted on a one-for-one basis - i.e., only to the student or graduate for whom the request was made - and UCLA School of Law expects reciprocity to be granted to one of its students or graduates in return. Reciprocity requests are for a three-month period only, or until August 1, whichever occurs first.
  • To use the OCS library, non-UC students must have with them a copy of the letter granting reciprocity along with a photo ID. An appointment is not required to visit OCS. The Office of Career Services is located in Room 77, in the basement level of Dodd Hall.
  • Reciprocity is closed between August 1 and December 1. Only UCLA School of Law students and alumni may have access to OCS during this period.
  • The following services are not available under a reciprocity grant:
    • Career counseling, resume review and on-campus interviewing
    • Username and password to subscribed websites
    • Access to the intranet portion of the UCLA School of Law website

Please direct reciprocity requests or questions to Sombra Ruiz at ruiz@law.ucla.edu - (310) 206-1117.
