Upcoming LGBTI Career Fair in Frankfurt

Lawyers and others can meet with law firm representatives on October 30

ALICE, a project of Uhlala GmbH, has announced that it is putting on an LGBTI career fair for lawyers and others interested in law careers. The fair will happen in Frankfurt on October 30.

Students, trainees, lawyers, as well as anybody else interested in a career in the legal field are welcome to attend. Although the fair is aimed at the LGBTI community, it is "hetereofriendly," meaning that straight allies who do not identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex are also welcome to attend.

At the fair, attendees will be able to meet with representatives from a number of law firms, including Latham & Watkins and Hogan Lovells. A full list of the confirmed law firms can be found below.

A number of speakers, including Christoph Naumann from Norton Rose Fulbright and Laura Klare from Simmons & Simmons, will be giving presentations on a variety of topics.

The fair is named after Alice Nkom, a Cameroonian lawyer currently fighting against anti-gay legislation in her country.

The fair will take place at the Steigenberger Hotel Metropolitan in Frankfurt (Poststraße 6, Frankfurt am Main) between 10am and 6pm.

The following law firms have confirmed their attendance at the fair:

  • Noerr
  • Latham & Watkins
  • Hogan Lovells
  • Simmons & Simmons
  • Kapellmann Rechtsanwälte
  • Baker & McKenzie
  • Linklaters
  • Ashurst
  • White & Case
  • Auswärtiges Amt
