Public Interest/Public Sector Career Day

Annual Southern California Public Interest/Public Sector Career Day

Public Interest Career Day 2018 v2

UCLA School of Law proudly hosts the Southern California Public Interest/Public Sector Career Day each February. Career Day is one of the largest career fairs of its kind in the country, bringing more than 130 nonprofit organizations, private public interest firms, and government agencies to the campus to conduct on-site interviews, staff information tables, participate in informal lunchtime discussions, and speak on a criminal law panel. While annually hosted by UCLA Law, Career Day is cosponsored by 12 other Southern California law schools – California Western, Chapman, La Verne, Loyola, Pepperdine, Southwestern, Thomas Jefferson, UCI, University of San Diego, USC, Western State, and Whittier.

More information for the 2019 Career Day will be posted in the fall. Questions may be directed to Brenda Kim at or (310) 794-4061.
