Overview

UCLA School of Law is pleased to host the 30th 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 – 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 expected to participate 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".
