Annual Diversity Job Fair


Annual Diversity Job Fair

 

The Boston Lawyers Group Diversity Job Fair for Law Students of Color takes place in Boston every year.  The Job Fair provides participating member organizations with the opportunity to select and interview applicants from a nationwide pool of qualified students of color.  It is our biggest event of the year designed to place 2L students in Summer Associate positions.  Furthermore, law students selected for interviews are invited to a networking reception the day before to meet with fellow law students of color, hiring partners, interviewing attorneys, and legal recruiting managers.
