Other Ways to Connect

The variety of Office of Career Strategy programs below strive to provide unique opportunities for employers to interact with Penn Carey Law students. If you would like to discuss other ways to reach out to our students, please contact our office.

Practice Area Fair

The annual Practice Area Fair,  held in November, is a chance for employers to educate students about a particular area of law practice. The event, which is traditionally very well-attended, gives students a better understanding of the work involved in various types of law practice and presents an opportunity for employers to increase their visibility with Penn Carey Law students and to generate enthusiasm about a particular field of law.

Stay tuned for information on the November 2022 fair in September.

 

Mock Interview Program

The Mock Interview Program, held each spring, matches attorneys with current 1Ls who are beginning to prepare for the upcoming fall recruiting season. Attorneys conduct a brief mock interview and then provide constructive feedback and advice on the student’s interviewing style. The 2022 Mock Interview Program will take place virtually through Flo Recruit on Tuesday, March 22 through Thursday, March 24, 2022.

Register via Symplicity beginning February 1 and by March 4

 

Additional Opportunities

1L Outreach Events

Off-Campus Events and Receptions

Firms are welcome to host off-campus, in-person events and receptions at the variety of restaurants local to Penn’s campus. If you need assistance locating a venue, please let us know at recruiting@law.upenn.edu. While firms must follow all local public health regulations and restaurant rules, Penn Carey Law does not have any additional Covid-related requirements or restrictions on off-campus events.

These events may be held in the late afternoon/evening so as not to conflict with 1L classes, which end at approximately 4:30 pm each day. To reserve your date and time, please complete the following survey, and we will be in touch to confirm your date and time: https://upenn.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0Ba627VtbU7gcUC

Once you have solidified your plans, please send information that we can share and advertise to students to recruiting@law.upenn.edu.

Virtual Events

Firms that would prefer to host virtual events and sessions are welcome to do so. To avoid conflicting events, please reserve your date and time by submitting the following survey, and we will be in touch to confirm your date and time: https://upenn.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0Ba627VtbU7gcUC

Once you have solidified your RSVP and event information, please send the details to recruiting@law.upenn.edu, and we will advertise to students.

We are also happy to distribute information to our students about upcoming employer events, such as webinars and live virtual Q&As. Please let us know!

Student Groups

We encourage employers to connect directly with our student groups, many of which organize panel presentations, symposia and other events throughout the year that incorporate employer participation.
