While held at UCLA School of Law, the Career Day is cosponsored by the Southern California-area law schools – California Western, Chapman, La Verne, Loyola, Pepperdine, Southwestern, Thomas Jefferson, UC Irvine, UCLA, University of San Diego, University of Southern California, Western State and Whittier. More than 140 nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and private firms are expected to participate in Career Day activities.

Public Interest Career Day is comprised of a number of different activities:

  • Prescheduled, formal interviews for summer and/or postgraduate positions.
  • Informal "table-talk," with representatives of many of the participating organizations, agencies and firms.
  • A series of informal lunchtime discussions, each focusing on a different substantive area of public interest practice (e.g., children and youth, employment law, immigration law), as well as a lunchtime discussion focusing on postgraduate public interest fellowships and the fellowship application process, and a discussion focusing on summer and postgraduate opportunities with the U.S. Department of Justice.
  • An afternoon panel discussion, "Criminal Law: Prosecution and Defense."
