Are you looking to launch your legal career in the Bay Area and beyond? There’s no better place to interview for a 2024 2L Summer experience than the 19th Annual Virtual Bay Area Diversity Career Fair (BADCF).

The BADCF is a two-day experience for rising second year law students to engage with leading law firms, corporate in-house legal departments, government agencies, nonprofit and other private/public legal employers looking to hire candidates just like you!

On Thursday, July 13, student participants are invited to join us for an employer diversity panel where you will hear from legal industry-leading experts representing various practice areas discuss their career successes and challenges. They’ll also weigh in on professional development best practices, networking tips, and building an effective job search toolkit.

Participants on day two, Friday, July 14, will participate in a full day of interviews with employers that are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This event is open to rising 2Ls (class of 2025) pursuing a JD at an ABA-accredited law school. Rising 2Ls pursuing a JD/MBA degree at an ABA-accredited law school, who are not graduating in 2025, are also eligible.
