It’s time to plan for the Equal Justice Works National Public Interest Law Career Fair & Conference to be held in Washington, DC, on Friday and Saturday, October 21 and 22. The Fair offers law students and employers nationwide a unique opportunity to meet and interview in a single location. The largest event of its kind, the Career Fair attracts more than 200 employers and more than 1,000 law school students and graduates. Register by September 12 at http://equaljusticeworks.org/law-school/conference-and-careerfair/students. Due to NALP guidelines, 1Ls are not eligible to interview, but they may participate in informal Table Talk sessions. (Funds may be available for partial reimbursement of expenses incurred while attending the Career Fair. Request approval at least one week before the conference; forms are available in the Career Center.)
In addition, Equal Justice Works Fall 2012 fellowship applications are due September 15. If you are a 3L, you must identify a qualifying nonprofit host organization that will provide you with a full-time position upon receiving a fellowship. And together with your host organization, you must design a new project that serves the public interest. See details at http://www.equaljusticeworks.org/post-grad/equal-justice-works-fellowships.
