TCDIP actively promotes MMRC to law schools and student affinity groups across the country. 

On August 5, 2022, legal employers will connect virtually with pre-screened candidates. The main event is a full day of 20-minute formal interviews. All employers are invited to participate, including small, medium, and large firms; corporate law departments; and public interest, nonprofit, and government entities. Employers are not required to be a member of TCDIP to participate in MMRC.
