Equal Justice Works Virtual Career Fair

October 20, 2022 @ 8:00 am October 22, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

The Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair is the largest public interest legal career fair in the country, bringing together hundreds of law students, recent graduates, public interest employers, law school faculty and staff, and public interest practitioners from across the United States and its territories for prescheduled interviews, informal “table talk” discussions, networking opportunities, and panel sessions on a variety of contemporary public interest topics.

This year, we are excited to announce a new format for the 2022 Conference and Career Fair that will ensure greater accessibility and inclusivity for our attendees. For the first time, Equal Justice Works will split up the event, with the conference and career fair portions taking place over two separate dates:

Equal Justice Works Conference: September 21 – 23, 2022

Equal Justice Works Career Fair: October 20 – 22, 2022

Both parts of the event will be held virtually and will require a single registration. More information about the registration process can be found on our For Attendees page.
