During the career fair, employers will meet individually with students they have pre-selected.  Students sign up for interviews prior to the career fair.

Student Check-In

Students need to check in prior to participating in the career fair.  Students participating in the entire day or the morning session only may check in for the career fair in the front of the atrium on the ground floor of the law school. During check in, students will receive a map of the law school, a list of employers participating in table talk, a list of employer interview rooms, and a name tag.
