We also host approximately 70 employers each academic year through our fall and spring On-Campus Interview (OCI) programs. Forty OCI employers in the 2012-13 academic year represented private law firms. At least 26 first- and second-year students obtained paid summer employment at law firms through the OCI process, and others secured internships during the academic year.
Diverse 1Ls at Colorado Law have the opportunity to obtain summer clerk positions at Denver-area law firms through the Colorado Pledge to Diversity Program. Five members of the class of 2015 obtained summer associate positions with Davis Graham & Stubbs, Hall & Evans, Messner & Reeves, Patton Boggs, and Snell & Wilmer.
