UPDATE (effective Summer: 2021) - Because of COVID-19 all MCGC job fairs will be conducted virtually. We are confident that despite these changes we will provide the same high-quality interviewing experience for students and employers alike. For information and registration details, please visit the MCGC website at https://mcgc.law.wisc.edu/. We look forward to returning to in-person operations as soon as we can safely do so.
USC Gould is a member of the Midwest-California-Georgia Consortium (MCGC), which holds job fairs in New York City, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Texas. Member schools include USC Gould, University of Minnesota, Emory University School of Law, UCLA School of Law, University of Iowa College of Law, University of Wisconsin Law School and Washington University in St Louis.
Held in late July and early August, these job fairs are an excellent opportunity for employers to interview second- and third-year students from USC Gould and other top-tier law schools at the same time and location.
