Chapman Law School's Spring 2009 On-Campus Interview (OCl) program

We would like you to participate Chapman Law School's Spring 2009 On-Campus Interview (OCl) program. This year's interviews will be held from August 24 - October 30, 2009. We encourage
all employers with summer associate or law clerk openings (paid or unpaid) to use the OCI program as a means of filling these positions.

Chapman Law, founded in 1995, received its full accreditation by the American Bar Association in record speed in August 2002 and attained membership in the prestigious American Association of Law Schools in January 2006. The school is led by an enthusiastic and talented faculty educated at premier law schools and includes a Nobel Laureate and four former law clerks to United States Supreme Court Justices. We are also pleased to announce that for the third consecutive year, our bar passage rate has risen. In addition, we continue to rank among the nation's best law schools in Princeton Review's Best 174 Law Schools, 2009 Edition. Chapman retained its Top 10 status in the "Quality of 1.ife (#3),"
"Professors Rock (Legally Speaking) (#7)," and "Best Classroom Experience (#3)" categories. More importantly, Chapman added a fourth Top 10 category to its roster-"Most Diverse Faculty," debuting at #9. Our newest Top 10 ranking demonstrates the significant effort Chapman has undertaken to have one of the most ideologically diverse law faculties in the country. Now only Northwestern and Stanford have placed in more Top 10 categories, with six and five placements, respectively.

Chapman Law students and graduates have been recruited by a wide array of employers, including large national law firms, government agencies, and corporations. Twenty-six of our graduates have served as judicial clerks, with positions ranging from state appellate courts to federal bankruptcy courts and
federal district courts. To better acquaint you with Chapman Law and its students, we have enclosed some materials for your review.

To participate in Chapman's OCI program, please return the Employer Registration Form enclosed in this packet by July 1, 2009. If we can provide you with any further information about Chapman Law or its students, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to assist you with your recruitment needs.
