Employer Holiday Parties & Receptions for Students

Graphic of a black and gold bow with "tis the season for a holiday party" in text.

Each year, employers across the country open their doors to law students in order to encourage them to learn about their company or firm. These are great (and festive!) ways of starting and/or growing your network. Virtual options are available as well! Students can also learn about firm culture, daily work, meet professional contacts, and learn how to be a successful candidate for future career opportunities. Be sure to dress to impress! When attending any formal party or reception, professional attire is highly recommended. If you have ties to, or plan to work in the geographic location(s) of the following holiday events, you are encouraged to attend one or more of these events:

PLEASE NOTE: Additional parties and events will be added as our office receives invitations for students. Be sure to check back often to see the new listings!
