Applicant Testimonial from 2022’s Empire State Legal Diversity Career Fair:

 

“This is the premier recruiting event in the entire New York State. It was well organized and attended by both employers and students. As an applicant, I had many opportunities to choose from and received call backs the very next day. I also obtained my current position through the Empire State Legal Diversity Career Fair. This year, I will be returning to interview talent alongside the very person who interviewed me.”

-Natalia Marte, Associate Attorney at Phillips Lytle LLP
