Marquette Law School invites you to explore public service opportunities through national, regional and local career fairs. These events provide an excellent opportunity for law students to meet with public interest firms and practitioners, learn about job opportunities and explore a variety of public interest sectors.
Equal Justice Works is the premier public interest career fair in the United States. Each fall, more than 1,200 like-minded students travel to Washington, D.C. to attend the Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair. The Conference and Career Fair offers students an opportunity to search for volunteer opportunities, summer positions and postgraduate opportunities in the public interest sector.
Marquette Law School sponsors students who are interested in attending by providing funding and registration. Students must register in advance if they wish to attend this conference. Students may also submit their resumes on-line and request interviews with public interest firms. Registration and attendance is coordinated by the Career Planning Center. Each Law School has an individual log-in for this conference. Contact Assistant Dean Paul Katzman for more information.
The Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference (MPILCC), sponsored by the Chicago Area Law School Consortium, is a job fair for students interested in employment and volunteer opportunities in the public sector. The Conference attracts over 50 employers for on-site interviews, table talk and for resume collections. MPILCC is open to first, second and third year law students from law schools in ten midwestern states including Wisconsin.
This year's Conference will be held at Northwestern Law School on Saturday, February 2, 2013. Information is available online at MPILCC. Registration is coordinated through the Career Planning Center.
