Bay Area Diversity Career Fair Brings Together 500+ Law Students with 55+ Employers for 1,100 Interviews

This summer, more than fifty employers conducted 1,100 interviews with
more than 500 second-year law students from across the nation at BASF’s Twelfth Annual Bay Area Diversity Career Fair, cosponsored by BASF and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe.

The night before the interviews, participating students and employers attended a welcome reception, which took place at Orrick’s office. Career fair founder and Orrick partner Neel Chatterjee, JDC’s Elizabeth McGriff, and two Bay Area Diversity Career Fair alumni attorneys welcomed the guests.

A breakfast panel held before the interviews featured several dynamic speakers.

Thank you to the following sponsors of the career fair: Berkeley Law California Constitution Center, Baker Botts, and Drinker Biddle & Reath.
