Touro Law Center
Public Service Job Fair

Touro Law Center is hosting its Second Annual Public Service Job Fair at which over 50 employers will accept resumes from and talk with students interested in summer and post-graduate opportunities. Bring copies of your resume (has it been reviewed by a CSO counselor?) and put your best foot forward by dressing in business casual.

Date: Tuesday, February 3, 2009
Time: 2:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Place: Second Floor Atrium and the Public Advocacy Center

In addition, prior to the Job Fair, on February 3 at 12:30 in the Alumni Boardroom, the New York State Commissioner of Human Rights, Galen D. Kirkland, will speak on opportunities in his New York City and Long Island offices. The Department of Human Rights enforces New York State laws which prohibit discrimination in employment, housing, credit, places of public accommodations, and non-sectarian educational institutions, based on age, race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, military status, and other specified classes. Please join us in welcoming Commissioner Kirkland.
