The 14th Annual Heartland Diversity Legal Job Fair (HDLJF) will be held August 10-11, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri.  Students who are interested in becoming part of Kansas City’s dynamic legal community should strongly consider attending this event.  Students who will be returning to school in August and those graduating in May are eligible to attend the job fair, as employers will be interviewing for both summer and post-graduate positions.

The HDLJF is the result of Kansas City’s leading law firms, legal associations, and corporate legal departments coming together to encourage law students to practice law in Kansas City.  The HDLJF is designed to expose law students of diverse backgrounds to both traditional and non-traditional legal employers.  In addition, the event is a great way to learn more about living in this wonderful city.

The HDLJF will kick off with an evening Welcome Reception on Friday, August 10th at the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, 2300 Main Street, Suite 100, Kansas City, MO 64108.  The Job Fair will take place on Saturday, August 11th at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Atterbury Student Success Center, Pierson Auditorium, 5000 Holmes Street, Kansas City, MO 64110. The Saturday schedule includes a continental breakfast, interviewing from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and a luncheon at which participants will be greeted and addressed by a special Keynote Speaker.
