Minnesota Minority Recruitment Conference

The Minnesota Minority Recruitment Conference (MMRC) is an annual event that connects the largest legal employers in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area with top 2L and 3L candidates from around the country. Each year's conference and job fair includes between 25 and 30 employers and upwards of 100 law students.

Employers participating in the interviews will include small, medium and large firms; corporate law departments; and public interest, nonprofit and government entities.

The conference is sponsored by Twin Cities Diversity in Practice.

The 2014 Minnesota Minority Recruitment Conference will be held on August 1, 2014 at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in downtown Minneapolis. We will host the MMRC Welcome Reception on Thursday, July 31, 2014.

"The MMRC reception was a wonderful opportunity to talk with the employers in an informal setting before the actual interviews. I received great insights into the legal culture in Minneapolis as well as information on activities and events around the Twin Cities."
