Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair

The Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair brings together more than 200 public interest employers to provide networking opportunities for law students and the opportunity for some students to interviews for full-time positions and summer internships.  Law students from over 150 law schools attend the conference to participate in workshops and informal “table talk” discussions, receive resume advice, and network with fellow law students and legal professionals.  Employers include public defender and civil legal aid service offices around the country and other government employers.  The Career Fair, including interviews, will be ALL VIRTUAL this year, so no travel expenses or inconvenience to participate.  You must register by Friday, September 18 to be able to apply for interviews and the Career Fair events will take place Oct 22 - 24.
