National Association for Law Placement

The University of Washington School of Law is a member of the National Association for Law Placement (NALP) and abides by its policies and standards. The NALP website is an excellent resource for information on legal career education and recruiting. It provides a directory of legal employers and information about them. We recommend that students become familiar with NALP and their standards for legal recruiting, especially as it will affect their applications to employers and timelines for contact and professional conduct.
