Northwest Consortium


The Northwest Consortium brings together ten law schools in the Northwestern and Rocky Mountain states that work together to enhance public service, employment, and professional opportunities for their students. The Consortium schools have worked together for decades creating the annual NW Public Service Career Fair, sharing employment information, and promoting judicial clerkships within the region. 

Who We Are

The Northwest Consortium of Law Schools is comprised of ten law schools in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Arizona:

NW Public Service Career Fair

The NW Public Service Career fair brings together employers from across the country and students from all ten participating law schools. Participation is free to both employers and students. The next NW Public Service Career Fair will be held February 3-4, 2023, in a virtual format. Learn more about the fair. 


Employers can post a job with all ten law schools, or contact individual member schools to post a job anytime. Learn more about hiring through the NW Consortium. 


Students and alumni from member law schools can request reciprocity to view job postings and opportunities with other member schools. Learn more about requesting reciprocity. 

Judicial Clerkship Information

The PNW and Rocky Mountain regions offer a wide range of judicial clerkships to launch careers and build skills. Learn more about judicial clerkships.
