Public Service Career Fair, hosted at The University of Texas School of Law, is the largest public service job fair for law students in the state of Texas. During both days of the fair, public interest and government employers will conduct interviews for paid and unpaid summer and permanent positions. Employers may request to interview 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, LL.Ms. and/or alumni up to one year after graduation from all nine participating Texas law schools.
Interviews will be conducted on Thursday, January 29, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, January 30, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 5:20 p.m. Students will submit all application materials online for employers to review and select interviewees . Employers may choose to participate in one or both interview days. In addition, on Thursday, January 29, employers may also host informational tables in the Law School's Susman Godfrey Atrium from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
On Friday, January 30, Heather Jarvis will be discussing the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness program during lunch from noon-1:15 p.m. A former capital defense attorney with law school debt, Heather Jarvis now dedicates her expertise to helping student loan borrowers make better decisions so that higher education can be a reality for all - not just those who can afford it.
