On February 10-11, NYU Law’s Public Interest Law Center hosted the 34th annual Public Interest Legal Career Fair. For the second consecutive year, the fair broke attendance records:  2,414 students and 598 representatives from 213 organizations attended. A total of 3,451 interviews were held over the two days. The fair, which is the largest of its kind in the country, provides students the opportunity to meet and interview with employers from around the country for internships and permanent jobs.
During the two day fair, students attended individual interviews with employers and “table talk” information sessions. On Thursday, students had the option of attending a special lunch session where a panel of experts discussed working for justice in the southern United States. On Friday, there were two lunch options: a screening of the Alliance for Justice-produced film Crude Justice, which was be followed by a discussion with AFJ’s Kellye McIntosh; and lunch with a group of California employers to learn about the public interest opportunities in northern and southern California.
