Public Interest/Public Sector Career Day

Each year, OneJustice and nine Northern California law schools bring together more than 100 public interest employers and about 600 law students for the Northern California Public Interest/Public Sector Career Day (fondly referred to as "PI/PS Day").

PI/PS Day launches the legal careers of our future public interest leaders. It is comprised of two components: 

  1.  Formal Interviews (All Day): Formal, pre-scheduled interviews will be conducted for summer and/or post-graduate positions. Only students from the Consortium can participate in formal interviews. 
  2.  Table Talk with Employers (9:30 am - 1:00 pm): Table Talk provides students and employers an opportunity to informally network and meet with each other. All law students are invited to participate.
