Veterans' Legal Career Fair (April 29-30, Washington, DC)

The 2nd Annual Veterans' Legal Career Fair will be held on April 29-30, 2016 in Washington, D.C.

This event -- the only one of its kind in the United States -- provides a unique opportunity for legal employers to interview lawyers who are veterans or active-duty service members preparing for a transition out of the military.

The career fair will arrange one-on-one interviews and informational sessions for veterans (including active duty JAG Corps members and reservists) seeking positions as lawyers, including with corporate legal departments, law firms, other private sector employers and government agencies.

Spouses of active-duty service members and veterans are also eligible to participate.

Last year's inaugural event drew 150 candidates from around the world and 45 employers, including two dozen leading law firms as well as representatives of legal departments at major companies such as Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, American Express, PwC and Prudential.

Veterans, lawyers transitioning out of military service and their spouses traveled from all over the country and international military bases to attend last year's event. One candidate called it “a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Sponsors include Orrick, The American Legion, Microsoft Corporation, Morgan Stanley, Shearman & Sterling, the D.C. Diverse Partners Network, and ALM.

More information and registration for employers and candidates is here.
