The sign up sheet which can be found on a clip board on the counter at the entrance of the Electronics Training Center is available beginning in the morning of the day of the presentation. There are only 17 computers available for the class so it would be wise to sign up at least 30 minutes before the class. No library card or ID is required.

(3) Vault / MCCA Legal Diversity Career Fair

It will be on August 7, 2009 in NYC. It is free. It is for women and minority law students and attorneys. Please see http://www.vault.com/legaldiversity/ for details. It appears to be a much smaller event than prior more prosperous years.
