Register NOW for the NYU Job Fair

New York University School of Law will hold the 35th annual Public Interest Legal Career Fair, sponsored by all of the tri-state law schools, including Touro Law Center, on February 9 and 10, 2012; it is the largest Fair of its kind in the country.  The Fair gives employers the opportunity to meet with students and allows students to interview with employers for summer and post-graduate jobs, as well as to talk with employers at information tables (a/k/a "Table Talk," which can also lead to job placements). Last year, representatives from more than 200 organizations and over 2,400 law students attended the Fair.

Primary student registration opens November 1 and closes on December 1, 2011 at 11 p.m.  There is a late registration period, but employer choices are curtailed for those who fail to register during the primary registration period.  There is no penalty for registering for the Fair and later deciding not to apply to any employers.  Failure to register, however, will preclude you from uploading applications.

All first-year students should register for the Fair.  Other students should register if they have any interest in public interest or government employers.  Law school graduates may register, but they are limited to participating in Table Talk. 

To register for the Fair, go here.  Just do it now.  Don't procrastinate on this, it's too important!  (Touro Law Center students/graduates should place any number in the space provided on the registration form for "Student ID.")
