Students Invited to Attend for NW Public Service Career Fair

On Feb. 2 and 3, the Northwest Consortium of Law Schools holds its annual and fully virtual NW Public Service Career Fair, where students can meet with employers working to advance concepts of justice, fairness, and wellbeing of the general public. Applications were due at noon on Jan. 16, but late registration to participate in Table Talks will be allowed.

On February 2 and 3, the Northwest Consortium of Law Schools will host its annual NW Public Service Career Fair (NWPSCF), facilitating students and employers from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, and Arizona to meet to discuss legal job opportunities in public service. Students who have not yet registered, but would like to participate in Table Talks, are invited to register for the Fair here.

The NWPSCF provides students with the opportunity to meet employers, learn about public service organizations, and interview for job opportunities. Each morning, the Fair is open for Table Talks, where students can “pop in” via Zoom to meet with various employers, learn about their organizations, and ask questions. Employers can also invite students who applied in advance to participate in brief pre-scheduled interviews in the afternoons. The Fair is free to both students and employers.

The NWPSCF has brought public-service minded law students together with nonprofit employers, civil legal aid organizations, and government offices for the past three decades. The fully virtual Fair welcomes law students from Lewis & Clark Law School, University of Oregon, Willamette University, University of Washington, Seattle University, Gonzaga University, University of Idaho, University of Utah, Brigham Young University, and Arizona State University. The full list of participating employers can be viewed here.

“The NW Public Service Career Fair is a unique opportunity to connect with over 100 public interest/public service employers,” said Alice Emerson, Director of Career Programming and Public Interest Law. “Table Talks allow students to interact with attorneys who span a broad array of practice areas and put their networking skills to use in a low pressure environment.”
