Moore & Van Allen’s 3rd Annual Diversity Conference was held virtually in January 2021. This conference is an exclusive opportunity for 1L law students to gain early exposure to one of North Carolina’s leading law firms. Students selected will hear from Moore & Van Allen’s partners, top clients, and fellow leaders in law about the climate of diversity in the legal industry, and how the firm is leading initiatives for change. The annual conference combines networking opportunities, interactive panels, and presentations from Moore & Van Allen members and clients.
