Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference

All first, second and third year law students at Akron Law are invited to participate in the 21st Annual Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference (MPILCC) to be held on Saturday, February 6, 2010 at Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago. The Conference offers students the opportunity to:

· Interview with a variety of public interest and government employers for summer law clerk and entry-level attorney positions (employers will pre-screen resumes and select students to interview). Though most of the opportunities are unpaid or invite outside funding, there are positions that often a stipend. Since most of the employers come mainly from the Midwest, students may find positions in the communities they seek to serve.

· Meet with employers during Table Talk, a morning session where employers and students informally and share information. Employers may, distribute brochures, newsletters and other organizational literature.

· Respond to employer job postings (resume requests) for internships (volunteer or paid), fellowship, and entry-level positions. This service is available throughout the school year at the MPILCC Symplicity.com site to students registered for the MPILCC Career Conference.
