The Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair is the largest national public interest legal career fair, bringing together more than 200 public interest employers to conduct interviews for full-time positions and internships.

More than 1,500 law students from over 160 law schools attend the event to participate in workshops and informal “table talk” discussions, receive résumé advice, and network with fellow law students and legal professionals.

In 2020, we welcomed former U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. as our keynote speaker for a meaningful discussion on how his experiences and upbringing have helped shape his long career in public service, and why the next generation of public interest lawyers give him hope. You can view a recording of the session here.
