NALP Online Directory of Legal Employers
The NALP Directory of Legal Employers (the "NALP Directory" or "DLE"), published by the Association for Legal Career Professionals, is a very useful tool for researching the hiring practices and employment policies of employers who are members of NALP, including the majority of large law firms, as well as many large government and public interest employers.
The NALP Directory sets forth information on member employers throughout the U.S. and Canada, including brief employer descriptions, contact information, salary information, hiring practices, practice areas, and demographics details. One of the most useful features for LL.M. students is the ability to sort employers based on those that hire LL.M. students. To access this feature, select the "Advanced Search" option on the NALP Directory homepage. From the drop-down menu titled "Organizations that Hire," select either domestic or foreign LL.M. students, as applicable. You may wish to narrow your search by employer type and geographic location as well. After running the search, a list of employers will appear. You can then select an employer to view its NALP profile. To facilitate a mailing to all employers your search yielded or a selected number of them, you can check mark each employer's name and then click the envelope icon. A new screen will appear with instructions on how to create a mail merge.
