Beginning on June 1, 2015, OSCAR will allow rising second-year law students to register for applicant accounts with read-only access. Read-only access accounts will allow these applicants to view and research clerkship and staff attorney positions, upload application materials such as resumes and writing samples to the system, identify their recommenders, make use of OSCAR's folder system, and access extensive online resources. Rising second-year law students will gain full system access on August 1, 2015. On this date, applicants will be able to build online applications and submit them for consideration to judges and staff attorney offices who have available position listings.
Applicants who currently have OSCAR accounts will not be affected by this change and will retain full system access.
