In addition to PI/PS Day, (whose employer-participants are overwhelmingly Bay Area based), there are a couple of out-of-the area regional public interest law career fairs that are taking place at virtually the same day as PIPS Day. One focuses on Pacific Northwest employers and the other is comprised primarily of Southern California employers. If you are absolutely certain you want to work in one of these regions (and not here), you may want to consider attending one of these other career fairs.
Neither allows you to compete for individual interview slots, but you are permitted to attend the “table talk” portion of the events to meet with employers.
The Northwest Public Service Career Fair will be held on February 6, 2009 at Seattle University Campion Hall in Seattle, Washington and on February 7, 2009 at Lewis & Clark College Templeton Student Center in Portland, Oregon . The Southern California Public Interest Career Day will take place on February 7, 2009 at UCLA Law.
