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 2018 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 2017 grades via Symplicity.  Unofficial law school transcripts are acceptable.

 

BLG Symplicity Link:

The BLG’s Symplicity Job Fair Database will ONLY be open between April 24, 2017 and July 5, 2017.  The application for students to apply will be opened for registration during that period.
