Public Interest Career Fair
Monday, Nov 7, 2011
Students and employers connect at annual event
It’s been said there is no substitute for “real world” experience. A wide range of hands-on experiences in the legal field were on display recently in Crocker Plaza, where 30 public interest organizations, including 15 USC Law alumni representatives, met with students to provide them with available externship possibilities.
2011 Public Interest Career Fair
The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, Los Angeles Public Defender’s Office, Children’s Law Center of Los Angeles, Public Counsel, and Mental Health Advocacy Services were among the organizations present at the 2011 Public Interest Career Fair. The event allowed over 100 USC students to ask questions -- everything from specific job responsibilities to the number of hours required to truly make a contribution within the respective organization.
Students meet with organizations
As Rothbart put it, “there’s a world outside of law school, and this is a good opportunity to gain exposure to opportunities available in public interest law.”
