We organize popular annual events and initiates to make it easy for employers to meet, interview, and hire Allard School of Law students.
Meet our Students
Large Employer Career Fair
Our Large Employer Career Fair is THE event for Allard School of Law students to meet and network with large legal employers from across the country. Close to 200 Allard School of Law students attend annually, as well as employer representatives from up to 50 different offices, including large full-service and boutique law firms and government employers.
The Large Employer Career Fair provides an excellent opportunity for you to discuss your focus, structure, and culture with Allard School of Law students, many of whom hope to summer or article with your office.
Small & Boutique Firm Career Fair
Over 130 Allard School of Law students attend our Small & Boutique Firm Career Fair annually to learn about practicing law in a smaller or specialized environment, and to speak directly with employers about their unique focus and culture.
Allard School of Law students are increasingly interested in opportunities with attending employers, with approximately 60% of Allard School of Law graduates articling with small and boutique firms the past three years. Relationships built at this lively event have led to many summer and articling positions!
Social Justice Forum
Most social justice organizations do not have the financial resources or time to regularly network and recruit. That's why our Social Justice Forum is free and designed to provide participating organizations with an opportunity to meet 50-70 Allard School of Law students interested in volunteering or pursuing a career in public interest law.
Vancouver Employer Tours Program
Host a summer a tour of your downtown Vancouver office. We coordinate six days of group tours, with participating employers selecting to host Allard School of Law students eligible for second-year summer positions, articling positions, or a combination of both.
These highly popular tours present a unique opportunity for employers to raise their profile while sharing their work and office culture. Students appreciate the opportunity to learn more about each employer, interact one-on-one with a variety of lawyers and students, and view employers' everyday work environments.
