Registration for Cook County Minority Job Fair opens April 3

The Cook County Bar Association invites minority law students at the University of Wisconsin Law School to participate in the 23rd Annual Minority Law Student Job Fair. Only students in the Classes of 2007 and 2008 (i.e., rising 2Ls and rising 3Ls) and domestic LL.M. students who will be enrolled in the fall of 2006 are eligible to participate. The Job Fair will be held on Friday, August 11, 2006, at the Embassy Suites Hotel Chicago-Downtown/Lakefront, located at 511 North Columbus Drive, Chicago, IL. Information for students on how to register for this Job Fair is available for students to pick up in the Career Services Office. This Job Fair typically attracts over 700 students and over 125 law firms, corporations, and governmental agencies located in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. This year, several new employers have registered from California, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina, and Washington, D.C. Law student registration opens on April 3, 2006. The student registration process has three phases. First, each student must register on their own as a participating student. The deadline for completion of the first student registration phase is Friday, April 28, 2006. Second, the 2006 Job Fair Committee must approve each student's registration. This includes verification that their law school has registered for the Job Fair and confirmation that they meet all participation criteria. Third, each student will be able to upload their resume only after they have been approved. A finalized resume and their 25 ranked employer selections completes the student registration process. The deadline for completion of the third student registration phase is Friday, May 12, 2006.
