Exciting job as public-interest lawyer: ???

The job market for law students is tough, and it can be especially competitive for students who want to practice public-interest law. But a public-interest legal fellowship can be an ideal option for many new lawyers. So if you’re a public-interest-minded law student – or if you advise or mentor one – we invite you to attend our panel on project-based legal fellowships in both the nonprofit and public sectors.

The panel takes place on July 11 at 6:30 pm, and features an expert panel, including lawyers from Equal Justice Works, the Partnership for Public Service, and the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. You can learn more and RSVP here, or by clicking on the image below:

Fellowships 2013

This free panel discussion will be held at the Georgetown University Law Center, McDonough Hall, Hart Auditorium, 600 New Jersey Avenue NW, (entrance on 2nd Street NW). A reception (with light refreshments) will follow. The event is cosponsored with Georgetown Law, Equal Justice Works, and NALP.

Finally, if you’d like a preview of the event, you can take a look at this Storify of last year’s fellowships panel.

I hope to see you on July 11, and look forward to helping law students find the public-interest jobs of their dreams!


With kind regards,
