Public interest career counselors, pro bono program managers, and other public-service career professionals from the law school and employer communities are invited to attend the 2015 NALP/PSJD Public Service Mini-Conference on Thursday, October 22 at University of California's Washington, DC Center with additional programming for newcomers on Wednesday, October 21.
Participate in this ideal opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from across the country, attend substantive and skills-based programs, and interact with NALP staff members! The Mini-Conference’s morning programs will include introductions, PSJD Honor Roll announcements, and a plenary program. Our luncheon will feature an announcement of the PSJD Pro Bono Publico award recipient (a student who has performed exemplary public service during her/his law school career), an update on staff-driven initiatives, and the NALP Public Service Section meeting. Our afternoon sessions will include two blocks of programming for a total of four breakout sessions.
Afternoon programming will include four exciting breakout sessions:
This year’s Mini-Conference events will once again include the popular Public Interest Advising 101 session for newcomers. Public Interest Advising 101 will be hosted at the UC Washington Center on the day before the Mini-Conference, Wednesday, October 21, from 4:00-5:00 pm. Following the Public Interest Advising 101 program, all Mini-Conference and 101 attendees are invited to join up for a "Round-Robin Networking Dinner" at 6pm on Wednesday. This pay-your-own way event provides an informal opportunity to network and share a meal with colleagues. We'll pick the restaurants and make the reservations for you!
The Mini-Conference, NALP’s premier public interest event, is a great opportunity to spend time with friends and colleagues during the Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair weekend, and offers wonderful programming that will benefit both veteran public interest career professionals and newcomers alike. We look forward to seeing you this fall!
NALP and PSJD thank the UC Washington Center for their partnership and generosity in hosting our Mini-Conference events.
