Delaware Minority Job Fair for First Year Law Students

As part of an effort to recruit talented students and increase diversity in the Delaware Bar, a number of employers will participate in the 13th annual Delaware Minority Job Fair for First Year Law Students on Saturday, January 17, 2009.

The Job Fair is by invitation only and is limited to first year students and interested in employment opportunities in Delaware.

To participate, students must apply for an invitation. The Job Fair differs from other job fairs in that students must be invited to attend rather than simply registering and attending. In return, invited students receive considerably more individual attention than possible in a very large job fair. By submitting an application for an invitation, students are submitting an application to all of the Delaware legal employers who participate in the program.

To become eligible for an invitation, students must complete an application form and return it via mail, fax or email, along with a resume and college and law school transcripts (if available) no later than Wednesday, December 10, 2008 to:

Amanda D. Horan
Job Fair Administrator
Morris James LLP
500 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1500
Wilmington, DE 19801
Fax: 302-571-1750

Applying students will be eligible for an invitation if selected by two or more employers to interview. The Job Fair will send out invitations with a proposed interview schedule after the new year which must be accepted or declined by Friday, January 9, 2009.

There are no application or registration fees. Invited students must arrange for transportation to Wilmington and the Job Fair hopes to reimburse all or at least a portion of those expenses. Historically, the Job Fair has reimbursed 100% of such expenses. Breakfast is provided to all invited students and leaders of the Bench and Bar will join students at breakfast to answer any questions about life and the practice of law in Delaware.
