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 JD law students.
The Diversity Career Fair brings together prominent law firms,
government legal departments, and nonprofits in the San Francisco Bay
Area with highly qualified diverse rising 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 registered students and 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.
BADCF will take place on Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 8 am – 6 pm, at the San Francisco Hilton in the financial district.
