Information for Law Students and Graduates

The 2017 Conference & Career Fair will be held on Friday, October 27 & Saturday, October 28 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA. 



At the Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair, there are opportunities for both pre-scheduled interviews and networking with employers through table talk. In 2016, 170 employers conducted over 2,600 formal interviews over the two day span. You can also have your résumé reviewed by trained professionals, take part in inspiring conference workshop sessions focused on issues you care about, and network with like-minded students, graduates, law school professionals, and practitioners.

Students and graduates will be able to use the online database to register and apply for jobs and internships through mid-September. Students and graduates will have to create an account and register to attend before applying to positions.


Even if you do not get the interview you were hoping for, there will be several opportunities to speak to employers outside of the formal interview times. Both Friday and Saturday will feature Table Talk, an open period of time where employers will be available to speak to students on a first-come, first-served basis. We have heard from many of our employers and students that interviews and offers have been secured from meetings during table talk.

You are encouraged to identify the employers you would like to speak to before Table Talk begins. Keep in mind that many employers may have long lines of students waiting to speak to them. Plan ahead and strategize to maximize your time with all employers.
