About This Event

Member organizations pre-select and interview applicants from a nationwide pool of qualified law students of color.  A networking reception for both lawyers and selected students takes place the day before.

 

The hiring process is highly competitive; therefore, the member organizations will adhere to the same hiring criteria they use when seeking candidates through the on-campus interview process.  The hiring criteria may include:

 

  • Strong GPA
  • Law Review, Law Journal, Mock Trial or Moot Court experience
  • Prior employment
  • Strong legal research, writing, and analytical skills.

 

Ultimately the member organizations determine the qualifications that best meet their hiring requirements.

 

Eligible Students:

Rising second year (2L) law students. Rising third year (3L) law students in 4-year programs.

Employers are interviewing students for only 2019 Summer Associate positions.  Graduates and LLM candidates are NOT eligible.

 

Registration:

Students must complete an academic profile by uploading a resume and law school transcript, including Spring 2018 grades via Symplicity.  Unofficial law school transcripts are acceptable.
