Wake Forest University School of Law Interview Program Policy

  • Early in the summer (the first of June), you will also be able to see and register for the out-of-state interview programs sponsored by Wake Forest. So, please pay attention to the instructions given for each interview programs as the application process varies. Please pay attention to the instructions given for each interview program as the applications process varies & check your WFU email account every day.
  • Almost all interview programs are 100% pre-select, which means you only attend if you are selected for interviews in advance.
  • Also, please note that it is important that you not contact the participating employers directly, prior to the interview programs. Many of these interview programs are sponsored by a consortium of schools where each school has to abide by certain rules or forfeit the right to participate in future interview programs. Not contacting participating employers prior to the interview program is a standing rule for all schools in order to ensure that all students are on the same footing and that employers enjoy the benefit of the streamlined recruiting process that interview programs have to offer.
  • Remember, per the Student Professionalism Contract, you are obligated to attend all interviews received through Wake Forest-sponsored recruiting programs regardless of the amount indicated on any other communication you may receive directly from the consortium law school handling student communications as Wake Forest’s policy differs (even if you only receive one interview).  Do not apply for events if you are not available to attend! Prior to placing any bids for the off-campus interview programs, we strongly urge you to check your finances in advance to determine if you can afford the costs associated with traveling to multiple programs.
  • If you have any questions about the interview programs, please do not hesitate to contact your Career Advisor or Catherine Sapp at sappcc@wfu.edu in the Office of Career & Professional Development.
