We recognize that one of the biggest hurdles to attending the Conference & Career Fair is affording the trip to DC. We're hoping to help by connecting you with other students in your area (not neccessarily at your school) to carpool, hotel share, etc. No personal information other than email address will be shared with other students without your consent. Sign up here! 


The Crystal Gateway Marriott hotel is fully accessible for people with restricted mobility and has guestrooms adapted for wheelchairs. Arrangements for a guestroom that meets your specific requirements should be requested when making reservations with the hotel. If you have a physical challenge that may impact your participation in this event, please contact Lauren Fuchs, Program Manager, Law School Engagement & Advocacy, at immediately to discuss accommodations. We cannot ensure the availability of appropriate accommodations without at least two weeks prior notification.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Companies by the name of National Travel Associates and Convention Housing Planners (CH Planners) contacted some of our employers last year offering a “lower room rate” for the Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair hotel in Arlington, Virginia. Please be advised that this offer is fraudulent, and this company is not affiliated with Equal Justice Works or any of the Arlington hotels

Equal Justice Works is committed to the financial protection of all organizations and individuals attending the Conference and Career Fair.
