Bracewell & Giuliani Participates in the Annual Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair

The National LGBT Bar Association’s 2015 Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair was held August 5-7, 2015, at the Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile. This annual event is designed to achieve a sense of community and inclusion for LGBT candidates within the legal profession’s recruiting efforts. By participating in this career fair, candidates can talk directly to LGBT-friendly recruiters from law firms, government agencies, LGBT rights groups, and corporate legal departments.

Bracewell & Giuliani marked a second year of recruiting at this prestigious national conference. Representing Bracewell were Associates Rebekah Scherr and Niki Roberts.

“The annual Lavender Law Career Fair was, as always, an excellent event with several hundred candidates and over 150 recruiters representing law firms, government agencies, and non-profit organizations,” noted Scherr. “The top law students in the country were present and actively seeking summer internship positions.”

This event is intended to provide students with a safe, confidential space where they can ask questions about job search skills and other related issues. In conjunction with the Lavender Law Career Fair, students have the opportunity to meet on-site with legal career service professionals. These legal career counselors are qualified to provide students with advice on resume, cover letter and interviewing. Further, these counselors all have significant workplace experience in various legal sectors, including LGBT advocacy groups, big firms and the government.

“The feedback from recruiters and organizers of the event was very positive and extolled the benefits of recruiting at Lavender Law,” add Scherr. “This year we brought back several top candidates. Through our recruiting efforts, we hope to be successful in obtaining the best of the best for our summer program. The Lavender Law Career Fair was a huge success and the firm is committed to increasing diversity and maintaining its support of diverse attorneys.”

The Lavender LawConference & Career Fair actively seeks the involvement of individuals from every segment of the legal community, and particularly welcomes the participation of people of color, transgender persons and persons with disabilities.
