Bay Area Diversity Career Fair
Application Period: May 20 - June 16
Deadline: June 16, 2013
In 2005, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP and The Bar Association of San Francisco created the Bay Area's first ever Diversity Career Fair for rising second-year law students.
The Diversity Career Fair brings together prominent law firms and government legal departments in the San Francisco Bay Area with highly qualified diverse second-year law students. The participating students come from distinguished local law schools, as well as other top schools from around the nation to interview for coveted positions in summer associate programs.Underwritten by Orrick and sponsored by BASF, the Bay Area Diversity Career Fair provides a much needed event for employers in the Bay Area, as well as diverse law students across the country, who previously had to travel great distances for job fairs that targeted minority candidates. In addition to the interviews, the fair also provides students with networking and educational opportunities. A welcome reception for students and prospective employers takes place the night before the interviews, and a breakfast panel the morning of the fair features diverse lawyers from a variety of practice areas.
