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 internship opportunities for the upcoming summer or academic year.
During the event, local non-profit organizations and government agencies will connect with students online via videoconference and share information on their organization and its hiring needs. Remember to dress professionally!
