Once a professor has consented to write you a letter of recommendation,
you must provide Melissa Burkland in a
complete list of the names and addresses of the judges to whom you are
going to apply (you can either e-mail the list to Melissa at email@example.com or bring it to her personally in Room 3211).
Once the letter is written,
the professor will give it to Melissa, who will produce the letters for
the professor's signature. If some of the judges on your list are accepting applications via OSCAR, Melissa will upload those letters into the OSCAR system (but she cannot do so before you have started to build an application on OSCAR, including uploading a resume and identifying your recommenders for each separate application).
For paper recommendation letters, after the letters are signed, Melissa will
place them in sealed envelopes and notify you that they are ready to pick
We do not process non-faculty letters of recommendation. If you want to use a legal employer as a recommender, you and the employer should decide the most expedient way to have the letters processed. If the employer is a public interest organization or other employer with little administrative support, and you have concerns about the processing of your letters, please contact the Career Services Office.
All paper clerkship recommendation letters should be included, in their sealed envelopes, with the rest of your application. If a recommender refuses to give you the sealed letters, and instead wants to mail the letters directly to judges, make sure he or she includes the following information on the outside of the envelopes: "LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FOR [APPLICANT'S NAME]."
