Northwest Public Service Career Fairs

Northwest Public Service Career Fairs

Help today’s clients and inspire tomorrow’s justice seekers

For twenty-eight years, the Northwest Public Service Career Fairs have introduced public service-minded law students to employers working to advance concepts of justice, fairness, and the well-being of the general public. Hosted at Seattle University School of Law and Lewis & Clark Law School, traditionally more than 50 non-profit employers and government offices engage with more than 500 students from the Northwest Consortium’s ten participating law schools.

Join us this year to connect with tomorrow’s attorneys who are passionate about making a difference!


Who can Participate?

Employers: All non-profit and government employers who wish to recruit students or alumni for legal or law-related positions are welcome to participate for free. If your organization would like to demonstrate a commitment to helping law students engage in work that improves the communities around them, we encourage you to consider becoming a sponsor.

Students: Only students and alumni of a Northwest Consortium School may participate in scheduled interviews. Law students of any law school are invited to participate in Table Talk.

Students, follow the links below to track which employers are registered for each fair.  These lists will be updated routinely so check them often!
