Receptions are a great way for employers to connect with Harvard Law students. With the opening of Wasserstein Hall, Harvard’s new, state of the art facility, employers now have the option of holding receptions on the law school campus or off-site in Harvard Square and the surrounding neighborhoods of Cambridge.
Employers must receive OCS approval for any recruiting events targeted at Harvard Law students. OCS vets all employer reception requests to ensure that a requested date will not conflict with other events that could impact attendance, including exam periods, OCS programs, student events, and other employer events. However, please note that events may be scheduled by student groups or other departments after a reception is approved. We will do our best to notify you of any potential conflicts at the earliest possible date. In order to enhance student attendance at each event, no more than two employer receptions will be scheduled on the same evening in the Cambridge area. OCS reserves the right to decline a second event request on a given date if the second event is likely to significantly impact attendance.
Please follow these steps to secure a date for a reception:
Your event is not approved until you receive an email confirmation from OCS. Once your event is approved, please review the information below to make the appropriate reservations.
We encourage you to collect RSVPs by email because that will allow us to integrate the RSVP process into our event calendar. In recent years, we have found that RSVP counts have been higher for events using the email RSVP process through our events calendar.
Harvard Law School’s Wasserstein Hall is transforming student life and learning at Harvard Law School. Comprising approximately 250,000 square feet on the corner of Everett Street and Massachusetts Avenue, this new complex is dramatically improving the teaching environment, providing new spaces for student activities, and significantly strengthening the learning community. Wasserstein Hall offers state-of-the-art facilities where employers can hold on-campus student receptions in the same building where most first year classes are held. For an overview of event space options, please visit our Wasserstein Hall Conference Room Overview webpage.
