Penn-Exclusive Off-Campus Events & Receptions
If your firm would like to host an off-campus reception that is open exclusively to Penn Carey Law students, we will coordinate a date and time with you to ensure there are no major conflicts with other firms, law school events, and the student class schedule. We will advertise these events in the Penn Carey Law event calendar, in our weekly private sector announcements, in our private sector canvas course, and in Symplicity.
On-Campus Tabling Opportunities
If your firm would like to visit campus to set up a table in one of our common areas, you may do so on select Wednesdays throughout the Spring semester from 12 to 1:30 pm. Feel free to bring swag, snacks, and/or attorneys to chat casually with students in between their classes.
Partner with Student Organizations
We encourage employers to connect directly with our student groups for additional opportunities to visit campus and connect with students. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to student leaders to see how your firm may participate in student group-organized panel presentations, symposia, mentoring programs, and other events. You may find student group contact information available here.
General Events & Receptions
If you are hosting an event or program that is open to Penn Carey Law students in addition to students from other schools, we are happy to help you advertise these to our students via Symplicity. Please email information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
