Stetson Law OCR Policy AffirmationEvery student participating in OCR must complete Stetson Law’s On Campus Recruiting Policy Agreement Form (found by clicking here) before their materials will be sent to the employer.  Note that if you completed this for a prior application Session you do not need to do it again (i.e. it only needs to be done once).

Stetson Law and this Career Development staff takes enormous pride in the fact that we consistently receive positive feedback from employers on our candidates’ preparedness. Accordingly:

(1) Each document submitted for an OCR opportunity will be reviewed to ensure that it meets the proper formatting standards. If a candidate submits documents in an improper format, the candidate’s materials will not be given to the employer.

(2) Each candidate must submit all documents requested by the employer, and if all documents are not submitted, the candidate’s materials will not be given to the employer.
