The Sacramento Region Diversity Career Fair was created in 2022 to help promote diversity within the legal profession. It is the first legal career fair in Sacramento and the Central Valley of California with an online platform where law students and attorneys can submit applications. The program includes four components: an in-person career fair with tables for employers; an in-person panel program to discuss diversity in the law and issues affecting diverse law students and attorneys; an in-person reception; and virtual interviews. The career fair, panel program, and reception are held at the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento.
The Sacramento Region Diversity Career is co-hosted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California, the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, the University of California, Davis School of Law, and the Federal Bar Association Sacramento Chapter. It is co-sponsored by all of the affinity bar associations in Sacramento, including the Asian/Pacific Bar Association of Sacramento (ABAS), Cruz Reynoso Bar Association, Leonard M. Friedman Bar Association, Sacramento Filipino American Lawyers Association (SacFALA), South Asian Bar Association (SABA), SacLegal Sacramento’s LGBTQ+ Bar Association, Wiley W. Manuel Bar Association (WMBA), and Women Lawyers of Sacramento (WLS); and the Yolo Unity Bar.
