Recruit outstanding JD students and recent JD graduates from 17 participating schools
Due to the issues surrounding the recruiting process in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Sunbelt Diversity Recruitment Program will be a resume collection for all participating employers. This was a very hard decision, but this will ensure that we all remain safe and well, while still providing students and employers an opportunity to connect.
Employer registration will open on March 2, 2020, and student bidding will begin on July 10, 2020. Employers who register before July 8, 2020 will receive two opportunities to recruit while only paying one fee. Employers will participate in both the 2020 resume collect and the 2021 interview program.
SAVE THE DATE: The 2021 Sunbelt Diversity Recruitment Program will be held at the Hilton Dallas/Park Cities on Friday, July 23, 2021.
The Sunbelt Diversity Recruitment Program seeks to provide job access opportunities to JD students and recent JD graduates who may be otherwise at risk of being underserved in the job market with a goal of creating greater diversity in our law schools and job opportunities through law school efforts. All JD students of participating law schools may attend the Sunbelt Diversity Recruitment Program. JD students/graduates of diverse racial, ethnic, national origin, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation and identification, and religions are particularly encouraged to attend.

Policy on Discrimination: The Sunbelt Diversity Recruitment Program Committee is committed to a policy against discrimination in employment based on age, sex, sexual preference, race, handicap, veteran status, or national origin. Job Fair services are available only to those employers whose practices are in agreement with this policy. By registering, employers affirm their intent to comply with this policy.
Employer registration opens on March 2, 2020, on the Sunbelt Symplicity Module. The registration deadline will be July 8, 2020.
