Heartland Diversity Legal Job Fair


 

 

Job Fair Facts

The HDLJF is a relatively new initiative designed by the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's Diversity and Managing Partner Committees. In 2005, the first annual HDLJF was held in Kansas City, Missouri. This job fair is unusual because law firms and legal organizations have come together to encourage students to make Kansas City their first choice.

Why Should You Attend?
In 2013, the HDLJF was host to nearly 80 students from over 40 Law Schools from across the nation. Below are some statistics about past job fairs which we believe you will find very helpful:
