47 law firms participate in 2023 Spring Firm Mingle to connect with rising 2Ls

Vanderbilt Law School hosted 137 attorneys from 47 law firms to its inaugural Spring Firm Mingle for rising 2Ls, held March 22 at the JW Marriott Nashville. The event connected students with potential employers representing locations in 72 U.S. cities and two international locations.

Dean Chris Guthrie welcomed attorneys attending the career fair, more than 70 percent of whom were Vanderbilt Law alumni. The evening began with a reception.

“More than 85 percent of the Class of 2025 attended the Spring Mingle,” said Betsy Key, who organized the event. “This career fair enabled students to connect with employers ahead of the busy summer recruitment season, and we appreciate the attorneys and firms who came to VLS to meet our students.”

VLS Career Services will host a 1L Fall Firm Mingle to allow members of the Class of 2026 to connect with potential summer employers on October 26.
