The second annual SUNY Buffalo Law Job Forum is set to take place on Wednesday, February 13 at the University at Buffalo's Center for Tomorrow (North Campus). Refereshments will be available from from 5:30 p.m. for employers and the Job Forum will run from 6:30-9:00 p.m. There is no charge to register or attend.

The event is limited to current SUNY Buffalo Law students. For additional information or to register your organization, contact Wilber Trivino or Luisa Johnson at law-jobforum@buffalo.edu or register via online registration form.

Attorneys and human resources professionals from across Western New York's legal and business community will get a first-hand look at tomorrow's law-trained workforce. Participating organizations include law firms, public interest organizations, legal services providers, corporate law departments, banking and finance industry legal and compliance departments, government agencies, and others.

Intended as an informational and networking event, the Job Forum offers area employers the opportunity to speak with the diverse and talented student body in a relaxed and interpersonal setting. Representatives may educate students about their organization and its mission, share firm culture, share internship or career opportunities as well as hiring processes and timelines, and provide practical advice for entering the workplace. For students, this is a great event to meet with attorneys and recruiting professionals, explore a wide array of career paths, and network with potential employers.

Originated last year by the Latin American Law Students Association (LALSA) and co-chaired by Wilber Trivino '13 and Luisa Johnson '14, this year's Job Forum is a collaboration of the Law School, the Student Bar Association, and the Buffalo Public Interest Law Program (BPILP). The student-organizers are building upon on last year's event by combining the long-running BPILP Annual Networking event, which regularly hosts fifteen employers, with the Job Forum effort, which last year hosted 13 organizations, including Hodgson Russ, Harter Secrest & Emery, Nixon Peabody, Hiscock & Barclay, Damon & Morey, and the Rossi Firm, the NYS Division of Human Rights, Monroe County District Attorney's Office, Tops Market Corporation, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Mass Mutual Financial, and Judge Advocate Generals for the US Navy and US Marine Corps.
