Job Fairs

The Law School facilitates student participation in many different job fairs throughout the year to give students opportunities to engage with a variety of employers. Most of the job fairs listed below do not have registration fees for students. For those that do, the Career Center is often able to cover this cost for students. Please contact Abby Phillips in the Career Center if you have questions regarding job fair registration or fees. Students are responsible for their own travel arrangements. Visit the job fair websites for more information on participation criteria and bidding timelines.

For information on The Southeastern Minority Job Fair (SEMJF), please contact Erin Biggerstaff. SEMJF is administered through a consortium of schools. Students should direct all questions regarding SEMJF to the CPDC and should not attempt to contact SEMJF board members.
