The 33rd annual Northwest Minority Job Fair is Saturday, August 17, 2019.
Garvey Schubert Barer is excited to host this year’s Northwest Minority Job Fair. Our goal is to continue to carry out the overall mission of the Fair: to foster access to employment opportunities for historically underrepresented individuals in the practice of law and provide a networking forum for these minority law students with legal employers.
The Northwest Minority Job Fair is sponsored by a distinguished group of legal sector employers, working to bring together both private and public law firms committed to promoting diversity inside and outside of the workplace for over 30 years. This Fair provides a special opportunity for employers and law students to connect law firm opportunities with legal talent. Each of the past couple years, the Fair has brought together over 150 students and 30 law firms/agencies, and we are looking to have even more this year.
The Northwest Minority Job fair will be held on Saturday, August 17, 2019, at Garvey Schubert Barer, 1191 Second Avenue, Suite 1800, in downtown Seattle. While registration is free for students, part of the employer registration fee provides scholarships for minority law students.
Garvey Schubert Barer not only recognizes the importance of diversity in our own firm, but also in fostering that same diversity in the legal profession and community at large. We are committed to the full participation and inclusion of diverse professionals as part of our core values of diversity and inclusion. We seek to attract, retain and promote diverse attorneys and staff, whether persons of color, women, LGBTQ+, or persons with physical limitations and whether they represent economic, geographic, social, ethnic, racial, or religious diversity.
We are proud to be among the many dedicated law firms in Washington to have hosted this special event throughout the years, including Davis Wright Tremaine, Dorsey & Whitney, K&L Gates, Lane Powell, Perkins Coie, Stoel Rives, Williams Kastner, and Pacifica Law Group.
We are excited for the opportunity to meet you on August 17!
