The Equal Justice Works Conference & Career Fair is one of the largest public service job fairs in the country and will take place October 18-19, 2019 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA. More than 1,400 students from 200 law schools attend for two days of interviews, workshops, networking, and other career opportunities.  Public interest employers conduct interviews for internship and full-time positions and meet with students in an informal table talk setting to discuss public interest legal opportunities.  The Conference and Career Fair also feature workshops on various public interest careers and job-search advice, resume and cover letter review, mock interviews, and more.

For those applying for preselected interviews, the online application period is now open and closes on Sunday, September 15. For those students who are not seeking an interview and may want to attend the conference workshops and Table Talk only, you may register any time prior to October 19, 2019.

To apply for a travel award, please submit your resume, unofficial law transcript, and a brief essay (no more than one page) describing why you would like to attend the Fair and why you need sponsorship. If you have applied for interviews, please indicate the employers you have applied to.
