Everything You Need to Know About Recommendation Letters

Recommendations in OSCAR

Recommendations in OSCAR mimic the process used in the paper world, in which an applicant requests a letter of recommendation, and the recommender writes the letter and mails it to the judge or staff attorney office on behalf of the applicant. In OSCAR, this process is handled online. An applicant will generate a recommendation request that is sent to the recommender's account. The recommender then creates and uploads an electronic document, and OSCAR sends it to the judge or staff attorney office as part of the application.
