UCLA School of Law
UCLA School of Law is pleased to host the 29th Annual Southern California Public Interest/Public Sector Career Day.  While held at UCLA School of Law, the Career Day is cosponsored by the Southern California-area law schools, including California Western, Chapman, La Verne, Loyola, Pepperdine, Southwestern, Thomas Jefferson, UC Irvine, UCLA, University of San Diego, University of Southern California, Western State and Whittier. The annual Career Day is designed to expose law students to the practice of law in the public interest and to encourage students to consider a public interest career path.  More than 110 nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and private firms are participating in Career Day activities. 
Public Interest Career Day is comprised of a number of different activities:
§   Prescheduled, formal interviews for summer and/or postgraduate positions.
§   Informal "table-talk," with representatives of the participating organizations, agencies and firms.
§   A series of informal lunchtime discussions, each focusing on a different substantive area of public interest practice (e.g., children and youth, environmental law, labor law), as well as a lunchtime discussion focusing on postgraduate fellowships and the fellowship application process.
§   An afternoon panel discussion, "Criminal Law:  Prosecution and Defense".
For Students:
Attendance on Saturday, February 8th is open to all law students from the cosponsoring law schools, as well as to students from law schools outside Southern California.  Please note, however, that only law students from the cosponsoring schools are eligible to participate in the prescheduled, formal interviews.  There is no need to preregister and there is no registration fee.
For Organizations, Agencies and Firms:
While registration for conducting interviews is now closed, registration remains open through Wednesday, February 5, for participation in other aspects of the Day. If you would like to participate or have any questions, please contact:
