Job Fairs

To increase the opportunities available to our students, Toledo Law participates in and provides information on a number of career fairs across the country.  Please click on the links below to review the requirements and procedures for each career fair in which you are interested.  For some career fairs students must register through the OPD first, for others students must register directly with the career fair organizers.  Where students must register through the OPD first, a notation has been made in the “Registration Deadline” column. 

The information below is provided for your reference; the list is not exhaustive.  While we attempt to update the list regularly, please note that dates and deadlines may change without notice.  Dates from past career fairs will remain until we receive notice of new deadlines.  Please check the web site of the career fair to confirm all requirements, dates, and information.  Multiple deadlines may exist within a career fair's application procedure, so be sure to review all requirements carefully.  If you have questions about any of the opportunities listed below, please contact the OPD at or 419.530.2851.
