The Annual Conference of the LGBT Bar is a two day continuing legal educational event with networking and business development programs.
This “Table Talk” style event takes place Friday afternoon after the two day conference from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. We expect over 190 entities will recruit at a table with two chairs on each side.
Areas of Practice Institutes:
The event features all-day and half-day programming upon application to advanced practitioners; each institute has its own admission standards. Institutes include Corporate Counsel, Family Law, Employment Law, Finance Law, Insurance Law, Intellectual Property Law, Trusts & Estates and Transgender Law.
Each sponsorship level allows for a certain number of full three-day passes to both the conference and career fair. These passes allow the attendee to access all events excluding “by application only” and “by invitation only” events. Passes include various lunches, receptions, CLE programming, and most other networking events.
Recruiter Opportunity at Career Fair:
All sponsors are provided a 6’x18” table, draped, with two chairs for recruiters and two chairs for interviewees on Friday.
2-Day Tabling Option:
VERY limited opportunity! For corporate legal departments and firms who wish to only exhibit during the CLE conference. Sponsors who select the 2-day option are provided with a 6’x18″ table, draped, with two chairs for exhibitors on Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The tables are set up during the CLE workshops and various networking events to garner optimal traffic flow and interaction with all attendees, especially high level professionals, firm decision makers, other practitioners and laterals.
Early Receipt of Law Student Resumes:
Supporter level sponsors and above will receive all resumes that have been uploaded by law student registrants one to two weeks prior to the Conference & Career Fair.
One Promotional Item in Conference Participant Bag:
Sponsors at certain levels have the opportunity to include one item in the conference participant bags. This item may not be paper. The sponsor should send at least 1,700 pieces (up to 300 pounds covered by sponsorship, heavier shipments may incur an additional shipping/handling charge).
Out & Proud Tickets:
At designated levels, sponsors will receive a corresponding number of tickets to our Out & Proud Corporate Counsel Award Receptions. These events take place in various cities throughout the year. The number of tickets is total per year, not per event.
Post open positions to the LGBT Bar’s Job Board for 12 months after your sponsorship commitment! Discounts for postings given based on sponsorship level.
Exclusive Corporate Counsel Events:
Supporter and higher sponsors will have the opportunity to send attorneys to our exclusive Corporate Counsel events. Number of tickets are based on sponsor levels as listed.
