Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair

October 28
Arlington, VA

The Equal Justice Works Conference & Career Fair is the largest national public interest career fair and an opportunity for students and recent graduates to participate in both pre-scheduled interviews and networking events. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to have their resumes and cover letters reviewed; participate in mock interviews; and attend panels lead by experienced public interest attorneys on international and immigration careers, managing student debt, and how students can organize to fight injustice. We're thrilled to announce that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan will serve as our keynote speaker on Friday afternoon!

Student/recent graduate registration for the event opened last week and students now have the opportunity to apply for positions with over 130 employers from across the country. More information can be found HERE


This fall, SDLP will host its annual symposium and the Environmental Law Program will host its annual Alumni-Student Networking Happy Hour. Stay tuned for more details
