NALP defines the southeastern region as Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia.
Law schools outside the southeast may be considered on a case by case basis. If you are interested in participating in the fair, contact the SIPJF administrator.
Eligible schools will receive email invitations with instructions. Some law schools choose to pay student registration fees for their participating students. Contact the SIPJF administrator to pursue this option, or if you need assistance with registration or other inquiries. We encourage you to gauge the interest level of your students in advance of submitting your registration materials.
