Equal Justice Works Will Continue with a Virtual Format for the 2023 Career Fair

/ Updates

Each fall, Equal Justice Works hosts its annual 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 three days of prescheduled interviews and informal “table talk” discussions.

This year, Equal Justice Works will host the event virtually for the fourth time, ensuring continued accessibility and inclusivity for our attendees.

While the career fair will largely function as it has for the past few years, the organization will not host the conference component of the event this year. This decision was made after careful consideration, and in consultation with our member law schools and public interest employers.

Equal Justice Works will instead introduce a new opportunity for law students this spring, designed to help them prepare for summer internships. This Public Interest Summer Internship Primer will take place virtually from May 31June 2, 2023, and will consist of eight interactive sessions on topics ranging from trauma-informed lawyering to issue spotting and case management. Attendees will receive a participation certificate for completing at least six of the eight sessions.

The 2023 Career Fair will take place October 1214, 2023 via the legal hiring platform, Flo Recruit. Early bird employer registration will open on June 8 and law student registration will open on August 3. Equal Justice Works will offer informational webinars and other trainings over the summer to help attendees prepare for the event.
