Public Interest Career Week

October 25, 2010

Blind Justice

Many people have lofty ideas of what they want to do with their law degrees.  Perhaps you think you’ll become a highly paid civil litigator or maybe a civil rights attorney.  Either way, at some point in their career, most lawyers find themselves working in the public sector.  Thomas Jefferson has a long tradition of training students to go out into the world to work for the most disenfranchised of our society.  

The Career Services Office, in conjunction with the Public Interest Law Foundation (a TJSL student organization) will be hosting its annual Public Interest Career Week.  Current students will have the opportunity to attend a Non-Profit Panel, Government Agency Panel and a Public Interest Career Fair.  Students will also be able to meet and mingle with attorneys working in the public interest field.
