Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we have ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones here with us to talk about the career aspects of transferring law schools.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Will transferring help you get a better job for 2L summer and later on?
  • How the OCI process might work at the new school
  • Formulating your reasons for transferring in preparation for job interviews
  • Do firms look at the original school or only the graduation school?
  • Are there any downsides to transferring from a job search point of view?
  • Types of career-enhancing options available to transfer students
  • Overall, is transferring seen as a positive or more of a negative?
