Two of the most-anticipated events of each academic year are the International Student Interview Program (ISIP) at New York University (NYU) and the Columbia 2007 Overseas-Trained LL.M. Student Interview Program.
Please note that these events are open ONLY to foreign lawyers currently enrolled in full-time LL.M. programs at sponsoring law schools. The NYU event will be held on Friday, January 26, 2007, while the Columbia event will be held the day after on the 27th.
The NYU ISIP brings together over a thousand foreign-trained law students from 30 law schools with over a hundred employers with jobs and internships in 36 countries, including the United States. Students typically submit their registration materials and resumes months in advance, and employers select the students they wish to interview.
The Columbia event is co-sponsored with six schools (Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Chicago, Michigan and Virginia). Like the NYU event, it consists of a pre-screened interview process where employers select LL.M. candidates to interview prior to the fair. Over 100 employers attended the 2006 event, including 29 employers who sought to fill positions or internships at US offices.
