Summer Diversity Job Fairs

Diversity Events

The Career Center often receives invitations for diversity-related events hosted by employers – including networking receptions, panel discussions, and more. These events will be posted in CORE. To view upcoming events, log into CORE, navigate to the Events section, and change the “Event Type” to “Diversity & Inclusion”.

Summer Diversity Job Fairs

The fairs are listed in order based on registration deadlines, to the extent that information is available. This list is updated with the Summer 2019 Diversity Job Fairs as we receive it. Please check back regularly for new opportunities.

Throughout the summer, there are numerous diversity job fairs throughout the country. Please note the following about these fairs:

  • Many of these fairs are targeted to diverse students who are interested in a particular geographic market.
  • Opportunities available through these job fairs are primarily for summer 2020 positions.
  • Some fairs are limited to certain class years whereas others are open to all law students, including recent graduates. Be sure to check the eligibility requirements.

Please also visit the specific job fair site for more information about eligibility and registration. This list will be updated periodically throughout the summer.

Please contact diversity@law.gwu.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
