USLAW announces 2022 Diversity Council Virtual Job Fair for diverse law school students
POSTED JUNE 3, 2022
USLAW NETWORK, an international organization composed of nearly 100 independent, full practice law firms, announces that it will be hosting a 2022 Virtual Job Fair for Diverse Law School Students on Wednesday, August 3, 2022. The job fair offers opportunities to connect diverse law school candidates as defined by race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, to USLAW member law firms, USLAW corporate partners, and client companies of USLAW member firms. 2L and 3L diverse law school students are eligible to participate and seek 2023 summer associate and/or full-time positions.
Brazen, an online event software company used by Fortune 500 companies and leading universities to organize and facilitate interviews, will be used as the platform for the virtual job fair.
There is no cost for USLAW member law firms, USLAW corporate partners, USLAW client companies, law schools or students to join. Participating organizations will have access to the software in advance to create an online presence and provide information that will be helpful to connect students based on geography and interest. Candidates will have access to the platform one month in advance of the fair to set up their profile, including their resume and most recent law school transcript, and determine which companies they would like to meet. USLAW member attorneys will also host a pre-event webinar on July 25, 2022, that will offer interviewing tips and guidance for participating law school students.
USLAW member firms, corporate partners, client companies and law schools that wish to participate should contact Cheryl Hanley – USLAW NETWORK practice group, special projects and corporate partner director – at email@example.com.
The USLAW Diversity Council leads the way in helping the NETWORK address the important issues of diversity and inclusion as they relate to our member firms, practice groups and clients. The Council provides a forum within USLAW that allows our stakeholders to collaborate and exchange best practices in matters relating to recruitment, hiring and retention of diverse attorneys and staff, and to help facilitate a diverse and inclusive culture within USLAW. USLAW has also established the USLAW NETWORK Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which is organized exclusively for charitable & educational purposes, including funding scholarships to provide financial assistance to diverse law students pursuing a legal education at an American Bar Association-accredited U.S. law school.
