USLAW NETWORK, a network of independent, full-service law firms with roots in civil litigation, partnered with Howard University School of Law in Washington, D.C.to host a recent recruiting forum. The event, which preceded USLAW’s fall client conference, featured 16 USLAW member firms and nearly 60 students from Howard who participated in a full afternoon of interviews for Howard’s second and third-year law students for both clerkships next summer or for attorney positions after graduation.

This was USLAW’s first-ever recruitment forum.  In addition to the interviews, several students attended USLAW’s client conference educational sessions later in the week.

“We had an incredible response from both member firms and Howard University School of Law students for our inaugural recruiting forum,” said Noble F. Allen (pictured left) of Hinckley Allen in Hartford, Connecticut, and chair of USLAW’s Diversity Council.  “The law students at Howard University were disciplined, motivated, talented and extremely well prepared for the interviews. We are excited about this inaugural forum and are very appreciative to Howard for providing USLAW with the opportunity to interview these very talented students. It is our hope that the lawyers who conducted the Howard campus interviews will recommend several office call-back interviews which could lead to job offers for some of these exceptional students.”

USLAW facilitated the recruiting forum with the Howard University School of Law Office of Career Services.
