What is Symplicity?

Symplicity is a word wide web based system used by the Career Development Office to administer both its On Campus Interview (OCI) Programs and its job posting database.

The Symplicity job posting database runs all year and contains job postings for law students and graduates in a variety of law firms, government agencies, public interest organizations and corporations. There are school year positions for 2L and 3L students, summer positions and post-graduate positions ranging from entry level opportunities to those for more senior attorneys.

All students and graduates of UM law have access to Symplicity.* If you do not know your login information, please email Diane Jones with your full name, graduation month/year and preferred email address. You will receive your login information within two (2) business days.

*Current 1L students will receive their login information on November 1.

Once you log onto Symplicity you may view the job posting database by clicking on the “Job Postings” link on the top navigational bar. To narrow your search, use the “Position Type” drop down menu. To view a specific job posting, click on the job title. This will bring up specific information about the available position including a job description, hiring criteria, application deadline and materials requested. Often, you can apply for positions directly through Symplicity. For those positions that do not allow for online applications, you will be given instructions on how to apply via email, fax, mail or phone.

If you have any questions about the Symplicity system, please contact the CDO.
