Bay Area Diversity Career Fair

The Diversity Career Fair brings together law firms, government legal departments, and nonprofits in the San Francisco Bay Area with diverse rising second-year law students. Each year, more than 70 legal employers conduct over 1,000 interviews with students during the fair.

The two-day fair takes place in the summer and includes a welcome reception and a panel discussion featuring lawyers from diverse backgrounds. The Bay Area Diversity Career Fair is a program of the Bar Association of San Francisco and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe.

Information about the next Bay Area Diversity Career Fair will be available in March 2020. For more information, contact Samantha Akwei at

Career Fair – Caryn Schreiber, Skadden

“Hands down, this job fair is by far the best and most important recruiting event of the year. It brings together all of the top, highly qualified, diverse candidates in the country that have an interest in practicing law in the Bay Area. From a review of the candidates we called back, we could have filled our summer program hiring needs if everyone had accepted.”
