Information for Employers

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 and over 2,500 dedicated law students and graduates under one virtual roof. It's the one-stop shop for all your recruitment needs.


Early bird employer registration for the 2022 Conference and Career Fair is now open. Standard registration will begin on Wednesday, August 10. This three-day virtual hiring event will allow you to recruit for internships, externships, postgraduate positions, etc. You can opt-in to host prescheduled interviews and/or participate in more informal “table talk” discussions with 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, LLMs, and recent graduates.

All event activities will either take place in or be accessible via our GradLeaders career fair database.

Prescheduled Interviews
Employers interested in interviewing candidates for specific positions will post their jobs on our career fair database in advance of the event and will pre-select which candidates they would like to speak with during the career fair.

Please note: These interviews will take place during the October event. If you have positions that you would like to fill ahead of the event, you can reach out to us at [email protected] and we will assist you in advertising those openings elsewhere.

Table Talk-Only Opportunities
Employers who are interested in participating in the event, but do not necessarily have any available job openings at the time of the event, are welcome to attend as a “Table Talk-Only” employer and speak with law students on a more informal first-come, first-served basis.

Key dates to keep in mind:

  • Early Bird Registration Opens
    Early bird employer registration will open on Monday, June 13 at 10 a.m. ET. Standard registration rates will go into effect on Wednesday, August 10.
  • Deadline for Posting Jobs
