SEMJF is a consortium of NALP-member, ABA-approved law schools in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. Law schools within these states must pay a registration fee each year so their JD students can participate.
Employers participating in SEMJF do so because they want to diversify their pool of candidates for summer and permanent positions. When bidding for interviews, participating JD students are required to submit a Diversity Statement which is shared with every employer and is designed to explain how the student helps the employer achieve that goal.
If you are a JD student attending law school in one of the SEMJF states, check with your career services office to see if they have joined the consortium this year. If so, your career services office will provide you with information on how to register.
All student questions regarding SEMJF must be directed to your own law school career services office.
