Each October, over 1000 law students, employers, and law school professionals gather in the Washington, DC area for the largest public interest and public service job fair in the nation. Coordinated by Equal Justice Works, a national organization dedicated to mobilizing the next generation of lawyers committed to equal access to justice, the conference and career fair provides an invaluable opportunity to interview with prospective employers for summer and post graduate jobs, attend sessions about job searching, post graduate fellowships, leadership, and post graduate debt relief, as well as meet other students and professionals interested in public interest and public service.
Temple students attend this event each year, and many have secured summer and post graduate work as a result. Students apply for interviews directly with the employers through Equal Justice Works’ registration database, and the employers will select students for interviews. Students who are not selected for interviews are encouraged to attend the conference and career fair as all employers participate in informal one-on-one conversations during table talk sessions each day.
