    your law school transcript (showing courses, grades earned, and cumulative GPA),

    STUDENTS WITH SCHEDULED INTERVIEWS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND

    THE JOB FAIR If you must cancel for any reason, you are expected to contact

    the employer directly, and notify the Job Fair Coordinator. Please make every

    effort to cancel interviews by the end of the student acceptance period.

    Students are not permitted to interrupt interviews or enter the employer

    hospitality suite. If you are unable to obtain an interview with a desired

    employer, please contact that employer using the recruitment information

    provided on simplicity or the employers website.

    Registration to the Job Fair is open to all student members of NBLSA.

    Accordingly, students will receive a limited number of bids to submit to

    employers.

    Employers will pre-select all candidates that they are interested in interviewing.

    Please be aware, the SRBLSA Job Fair Coordinators have no control over the

    selection process. There will NOT be a lottery to determine interviews.

    Following the fair, participants will be contacted to provide information on their

    interviewing experience, as well as results of the fair, including the number of

    call back interviews and job offers made to fair participants.
