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, government legal departments, and nonprofits 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.

"[The] Bay Area Diversity Career Fair was an incredible and worthwhile experience. To see so many practicing attorneys and law firms committed to interviewing talented law students, from all types of backgrounds, was inspiring. I was also lucky enough to get a summer associate position with my top firm!"

" This career fair is by far, the best run recruiting event in addition to having the best candidates we see all fall. We are looking forward to attending again this year. "
