Information for Law School Professionals

Join us as we bring together more than 1,200 students, 180 employers, and 120 law school faculty, staff and practitioners in the public interest field at the Equal Justice Works annual Conference and Career Fair! Registration for law school professionals opens on August 14th and is free for all member schools.

KEY INFORMATION

 

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

  • Registration is free!
  • Law school professionals are welcome to speak with available employers throughout the event. Last year, 44 of the 170 employers did not participate in prescheduled interviews meaning they were available all day on Friday and Saturday on a first come, first serve basis and all employers participate in two-hour mandatory Table Talk on each day.
  • Attend the employer and law school professional "networking break" sponsored by NALP on Friday evening and have a chance to talk informally with employers from across the country.
  • Attend conference sessions and panels on hot topics in public interest law! Last year's program included sessions led by Justice Kagan and Ralph Nader and panels focused on racial justice issues, legal incubators, and more.
  • Volunteer to assist students with resume review and mock interviews and share your expertise with students from across the country as they head into interviews!
