Register Now: 2017 Equal Justice Works Conference & Career Fair

 
Free for GW Law School Students!

Friday, October 27-Saturday, October 28, 2017
Crystal Gateway Marriott
Arlington, VA (Metro Accessible)

The Equal Justice Works Conference & Career Fair is the largest national public interest legal career fair in the country. More than 165 public interest employers conduct interviews for internships and full-time jobs and meet with students in informal “table talk” discussions of public interest legal opportunities. Over 1,200 students from nearly 150 law schools attend for interviews, workshops on public interest careers, networking, resume review, mock interviews, and more.

GW Law School is making this event free to all currently enrolled students. This includes 1Ls, who may attend Table Talk, workshops, and any event programming outside of scheduled interviews. Important Note: If you are no longer able to attend the event, email careerfair@equaljusticeworks.org to request your registration be canceled before October 9.
