About Southeastern Minority Job Fair (SEMJF)
The Southeastern Minority Job Fair, or SEMJF, is a legal interview program which brings together employers from all over the country and diverse students from more than 50 law schools in the southeastern United States. It is one of the oldest and largest events of its kind in the country.
Historically, employers have gathered in Atlanta over a Friday and Saturday in mid-July to interview the students they have pre-selected from a potential pool of around 600 diverse candidates. Like on-campus interviews, the students that employers select are scheduled for 20-minute screening interviews in hotel meeting rooms, after which successful candidates are typically invited for call-back interviews. Employers interview rising 2L and 3L students for summer and permanent jobs which commence a year later, or recent graduates for immediate openings.
