For 2L students attending schools that participate in OCIs, you will hear directly from your law school as to whether or not you have been offered an OCI. Post OCIs, for those students who attend schools that do not conduct OCIs (as well as for articling applicants) we will advise you in advance of Call Day if we will be inviting you to the firm for an interview and will provide you with further particulars regarding our process at that time and in accordance with the LSO Guidelines.
