Conference and Career Fair

The Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair is the largest national public interest legal career fair in the country. More than 160 public interest employers conduct interviews for internships and full-time jobs and meet with students in informal “table talk” discussions of public interest legal opportunities. Over 1,200 students from nearly 200 law schools attend for interviews, workshops on public interest careers, job search advice, networking, resume and cover letter review, mock interviews, and more.


The Colorado Public Defender employs dozens of great lawyers who first came to us through interviews or Table Talk sessions at the Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair.  Equal Justice Works attracts a diverse group of talented and committed public interest law students from across the country.  Over two days, we see dozens of accomplished students who might not find it viable to interview in person in Colorado.  We’ve found it to be the best one-stop shopping event for public interest employers and students."
