On-campus interviewing (OCI) is a long-standing process for summer associate recruiting, organized by law schools. OCI can be a dizzying process, with dozens of interviews in a span of 2-3 days – but with the right preparation and perspective, it is easy to get your OCI week under control.
Although each law school uses its own system for OCI bidding and participation, this content is helpful for navigating the process and knowing when to lean on your law school career office for help.
