Equal Justice Works
Conference & Career Fair

The Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair will again offer its trademark features — a national career fair to match public interest employers with applicants, and public interest and social justice workshops, including a special track for law school public interest professionals.

Career Fair: Over 75 employers have already registered for the Career Fair and are currently accepting resumes. Submit your resumes soon, as interview slots fill up early. The deadline to submit resumes to employers is September 14, 2007. Students do not have to be registered for the EJW Conference and Career Fair to submit a resume. We suggest that students visit the website often for an updated status on employer registrations.

Conference: More information about the Conference sessions will be available online this month. Sessions will include topics such as same sex marriages and death penalty moratoriums.

New events this year for the Conference and Career Fair include:

* Law School Awards Luncheon Students, law school professionals and employers will gather on Saturday, October 6, to honor those in the law school community who serve as role models of public service.
* Student leaders from around the country share what is happening on their campuses.
* Student discussion groups supplement workshops, giving students the opportunity to get to know one another better.

Another change this year is that the Conference and Career Fair will be held a week prior to the Equal Justice Works Awards Dinner, scheduled for October 11 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

Important Dates:

August 27: Registration goes online
September 14: Last day for students to apply for interviews.
September 28: Last day to register for the Conference and Career Fair
October 6-7: The Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair

Additional Information:

Registration: Students, alumni and law school professionals may begin registering for the Conference and Career Fair beginning August 27, 2007. Each school receives a number of free registrations based on its membership level. Once registered, students must be approved by his or her law school to receive a free registration. More information can be found here in the coming weeks.
