Veterans’ Legal Career Fair – Recruiting Opportunity for Alumni

On May 1-2, 2015, a Veterans’ Legal Career Fair will take place in Washington, D.C. This is the first time a career fair is being held specifically for experienced lawyers who have served in the U.S. military and those who are transitioning out of military service, as well as lawyers who are military spouses.


Orrick is honored to partner with The American Legion; corporate founding sponsors Microsoft Corporation, Morgan Stanley and ALM Media; and private practice sponsors Shearman & Sterling and the D.C. Diverse Partners Network to create this event. In 2005, Orrick founded the Bay Area Diversity Career Fair for diverse law students, a successful program that is now in its tenth year. We are excited to leverage that experience to produce a distinctive event geared toward more experienced attorneys who have served our nation in the Armed Forces in any capacity.


This event is aimed at matching licensed, practicing attorneys with prospective employers. This is a unique opportunity to interview one-on-one with top law firms, corporate in-house legal departments, governmental agencies and other private legal employers with a commitment to hiring lawyers who are veterans. Again, this career fair is for licensed attorneys only; it is not open to current law school students.
