Job Postings on Symplicity

We post legal job listings in our career information system powered by Symplicity. Many listings come from Villanova graduates, and the site is free from "blind" postings that you may find on some commercial sites. Our postings come from diverse sources and locations, and are a mix of entry-level and experienced opportunities. Symplicity requires users to set up an individual, password protected account. Instructions for creating an account or re-activating your student account can be found here.

Reciprocity Privileges and Job Bulletins

If you are searching outside the Greater Philadelphia area, see the Reciprocity Guide to access other law school alumni bulletins or to arrange use of another law school’s career library. Contact to obtain a user id and password to access bulletins.
