Equal Justice Works Announces New Format for 2022 Conference and Career Fair

/ Blog Post

Each fall, Equal Justice Works hosts its annual Conference and Career Fair, the largest national public interest legal career fair that brings together hundreds of law students, recent graduates, public interest employers, law school faculty and staff, and public interest practitioners from across the United States and its territories for prescheduled interviews, informal “table talk” discussions, networking opportunities, and panel sessions on contemporary public interest topics.

This year, we are excited to announce a new format for the 2022 Conference and Career Fair that will ensure greater accessibility and inclusivity for our attendees. For the first time ever, Equal Justice Works will split up the event, with the conference and career fair portions taking place over two separate dates.

The conference will take place on September 21 – 23, and the career fair will follow one month later on October 20 – 22. Both parts of the event will be held virtually once again.

The decision to host the Conference and Career Fair over separate dates will give law students the opportunity to maximize their experience and participate in all aspects of the event, as panel sessions will no longer overlap with prescheduled interviews and meet and greets with employers. Additionally, the new format will give space within the conference for law school professionals to network with their colleagues and attend exclusive sessions on the benefits of Equal Justice Works membership and how to best advise students on the Equal Justice Works Fellowship process, among other things.

The Conference and Career Fair will still require a single registration, with early bird employer registration opening on June 13 and law student and law school professional registration opening on August 11. Equal Justice Works will offer informational webinars and other trainings over the summer to help attendees prepare for the event.
