Delaware Minority Job Fair

The Delaware Minority Job Fair Committee of the Delaware State Bar Association invites students at your law school to apply for an invitation to participate in the 2013 Delaware Minority Job Fair for Second- and Third-Year Law Students, which will be held at the Wilmington, Delaware campus of Widener University School of Law on Saturday, August 10, 2013.  The Job Fair was founded by a consortium of Delaware law firm, corporate, and public sector/interest legal employers interested in recruiting minority law students for the purpose of increasing diversity in the Delaware bar.  The Job Fair, an invitation-only event, is limited to students interested in employment opportunities in Delaware who will be in their second or third year of law school during the 2013-14 academic year.  While minority law students are the focus of this event, the Job Fair accepts applications from all interested students.
