The 31st Annual Northwest Minority Job Fair
Saturday, August 19th, 2017.
Pacifica Law Group is honored to host the 31st Annual Northwest Minority Job Fair. We are committed to the Fair’s mission of fostering access to employment opportunities for historically underrepresented persons in the practice of law and to provide a networking forum for legal employers and minority law students.
The Northwest Minority Job Fair, sponsored and funded by a consortium of legal sector employers, has brought together private and public law firms committed to promoting diversity for over 30 years. It provides a unique opportunity for employers, law students, and lawyers to connect and match legal talent with law firm opportunities. Last year’s Northwest Minority Job Fair brought together approximately 150 students and 30 law firms/agencies.
This year’s Fair will be held Saturday, August 19, 2017, at Pacifica Law Group, 1191 Second Avenue, Suite 2000, in Seattle. Registration is free for students, and all expenses are paid by the participating employers. Part of the registration fee provides scholarships for minority students.
Pacifica Law Group recognizes the importance of diversity in our own firm, in the legal profession, and in our community at large. We value our differences and seek to attract, retain, and promote outstanding lawyers of diverse ethnicity, orientations, perspectives, and backgrounds. We are committed to inclusion among our lawyers, staff, and clients and treat every person with the same measure of respect and care that we would expect of them.
We are proud to be among the many dedicated law firms in Washington that have supported and hosted this event throughout its 30-year history, including Davis Wright Tremaine, Dorsey & Whitney, K&L Gates, Lane Powell, Perkins Coie, Stoel Rives, and Williams Kastner.
We look forward to meeting you on August 19.
