The Equal Justice Works Career Fair in Arlington, VA, is the preeminent career fair for public interest minded law students and recent graduates. Over 125 employers (legal aid offices, public defenders offices, federal government organizations, advocacy groups, and nonprofits) will attend this year’s conference, and will interview students for internship and permanent positions. As you have likely heard, most legal aid and nonprofit organizations are facing funding cuts and staff layoffs, so it is especially important that students have this opportunity to interview with those few organizations that are actually hiring in this economy.
The Career Fair will take place on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA. Students (2L’s and 3L’s) have until September 20th to register for the conference and submit their resumes to employers for interview selection. (Students who would like to attend the conference to gain more information but do not wish to interview, may register until October 11th). Students can follow this link to register (http://www.equaljusticeworks.org/law-school/conference-and-careerfair/students). Here is a link to this year’s registered employers (http://www.equaljusticeworks.org/law-school/conference-and-careerfair/employer/2012).
If you have any questions about the conference, feel free to contact Jennifer Turney at email@example.com in the Career Services Department.

Loyola University Chicago School of law is hosting the 2012 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, August 2 and Friday, August 3 in Chicago, Illinois. This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers, rising 2L and 3L students, and students in Intellectual Property LLM programs.
Last year roughly 100 employers, 180 law schools, and 1,600 law students from across the country participated in the program. The program is entirely pre-selected, which means that students submit resumes and bid on interviews with the employers they are interested in, and employers then review the resumes of the students who bid on them and select the students they wish to interview at the program. Last year, approximately half of the participating students were selected for interviews.
Students with undergraduate or graduate degrees in engineering or a technical science should consider registering for the program. You do not need to be patent bar eligible to register, although the vast majority of employers participating in the program are seeking patent bar eligible students.
For more information on the program, please refer to the program website at http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_students.html. You will see a “Register Now” link on the above web page. At this stage of registration, you will only need to enter some basic information (you will upload your resume and bid on interviews later in the semester). Please note that our school is listed alphabetically as Florida Coastal School of Law on the registration form’s drop down menu of law schools.
The Southeastern Intellectual Property Job Fair (SIPJF) is an initiative founded by the Intellectual Property Advisory Board, which is an alumni group associated with the Georgia State University College of Law. The fair is managed and executed by the Georgia State University College of Law Career Services Office. Many members of the Founders group are very active in Atlanta’s IP community, working in the city’s most well known companies and firms. SIPJF has been made possible by a joint effort of student volunteers, alumni, and the Georgia State University College of Law Career Services Office.
SIPJF mainly targets fulfilling summer associate and entry-level positions for 2011. Consequently, participation is open to full-time and part-time students (from registered schools) who are classified as rising 2L or rising 3L students, who will return for classes for the Fall 2011 semester. Students that will graduate in the Spring or Summer of 2011 are not eligible (unless specifically requested by an employer). LLM students and Alumni are also ineligible.
