Resident Associate Program (RAP)

RAP meets the needs of Loyola’s most recent graduates by encouraging small and mid-sized firms that do not typically hire entry level attorneys to hire the newest members of the legal profession. Initiated with the Class of 2014, RAP helps graduates pursue their career goals by providing incentives for small and mid-sized firm employers to hire them as entry-level associates. The law school shares the responsibility of continuing to train graduates during the one-year program and the employers pay a salary similar to a post-graduate legal fellowship.

Eligibility for the 2017-2018 Program

Graduates must be the following criteria in order to participate in the 2017-2018 RAP program:
  • Must be a December 2016 or May 2017 graduate of Loyola Law School, Los Angeles

  • Must attend the Post-Bar Kickoff/Legal Practice Boot Camp (August 7-11, 2017) or obtain an exemption after attending Civil Litigations Skills Practicum I & II 
  • Must attend three free Continuing Legal Education programs throughout the RAP year
  • Must have passed the February 2017 California Bar exam or have taken the July 2017 California Bar exam
  • Must be selected by a participating Resident Associate Program employer

Application and Selection Process

The application period will open in Symplicity after the Boot Camp. The application consists of a completed registration form, resume, statement of interest, unofficial transcript, writing sample, and a short videotaped pre-screening interview. Graduates will be able to review employers and determine which employers will receive their application packets. Employers will contact selected graduates for interviews at the employer’s office.
