Public Interest Law Week

This week's programs are a must for any student interested in a public interest internship and/or career! The series includes panels featuring attorneys from government agencies and non-profit organizations discussing what they do and how you can become an intern and pursue a public interest career. Panels are scheduled for Wednesday, January 25 at 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. and will be held as online virtual meetings.

Government and Public Interest Table Talk (GPITT)

Culminating after the Public Interest Law Week series of career panels discussing the advantages and challenges of practicing in the public sector, the Government and Public Interest Table Talk (GPITT) gives students the opportunity to meet with public interest employers and discuss internships and other employment opportunities.

During the event, non-profit organizations and government agencies will connect with students online via videoconference (Thursday) or in-person (Friday) and share information on their organizations and their hiring needs. Remember to dress professionally!
