Northwest Public Service Career Fair

Northwest Public Service Career Fair

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

For thirty years, the Northwest Public Service 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!

FEBRUARY 7 and 8, 2020


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 Law School may participate in scheduled interviews and resume collects.
