About This Event

 

 

The 2020 BLG Diversity Job Fair will be held on Tuesday, July 16, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. 

2020 JOB FAIR INFORMATION & APPLICATION PROCESS

Please be advised, students DO NOT bid on employers for the BLG Job Fair.  Employers pre-select students that meet their firm’s hiring criteria from the pool of registered students.  Selected students are then given a schedule of interviews ranging from 1 interview to a maximum of 10 interviews before the date of the event.  No interviews take place before the job fair.  All selected students with schedules will interview on July 16, 2020.

The hiring process is highly competitive; therefore, 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, graduating Class of 2022. Rising third year (3L) law students in 4-year programs.

Employers are interviewing students for only 2021 Summer Associate Positions.  Graduates and LLM candidates are NOT eligible.

Registration:

Students must complete an academic profile by uploading their resume and law school transcript, including Spring 2020 grades, to the Symplicity application portal. Unofficial copies are acceptable.

BLG Symplicity Link:

The BLG’s Symplicity Job Fair application portal will ONLY be open between April 20, 2020 to June 18, 2020. Please note, you will need to create a new Symplicity account to register for the Job Fair even if you had already created one for a prior BLG program.

PLEASE NOTE: Our members’ criterion focuses on deserving diverse students and gives preference to students with racial and ethnic backgrounds that have been historically underserved and underrepresented in the legal profession.  Competitive applicants should have strong ties to Boston and an interest in pursuing a career in law.  This criterion is in accordance with our mission to create a pipeline of talent enabling our members to identify, recruit, advance and retain diverse attorneys in Boston’s legal community.
