Why Exhibit?

The Sydney Law Careers Fair provides the perfect solution for exhibitors wishing to maximise their exposure to potential candidates whilst minimising their costs. If you have limited time, resources or budget, the Sydney Law Careers Fair is the ideal way to reach law students from all universities in one day. The facilitators of the fair put in place specific, colour-coded student name tags to enable employers to identify the university and year of study for each student.
