Q. Why am I having trouble registering?
A. Some circumstances can result in an unsuccessful registration:

The personal information that you entered is different than your information while at Kirkland & Ellis.
This is the most common cause. Because this information verifies who you are, when registering, it is necessary for all entries on the registration form to match the information in the Kirkland & Ellis alumniLink database. Please try all variations of your name and other requested information.

You left the firm within the last 30 days.
Once you have officially terminated your position, your information is uploaded into the Kirkland & Ellis alumniLink database. If you provide your e-mail address, you will receive an e-mail invitation within about a month, and then you will then be able to register.

You are/were a summer intern or consultant.
Unfortunately, at this time the site is not open to summer interns or consultants. Please visit http://www.kirklandalumni.com to stay up to date with news about the firm and to apply for opportunities.
