Suing the Government Is A Growth Industry: How to Make the Most From Your Law Degree (And Your Life) with a Career in Public-Interest Law: A Conversation with the Institute for Justice

-

Location: 1140 Eck Hall of Law

Sometimes law students are told they have two options: a miserable life earning decent money at a law firm, or a rewarding job coupled with a vow of poverty. This isn’t true. Sam Gedge, an attorney with the Institute for Justice, will discuss his public-interest career and steps you can take to have a career at IJ. Matt Curtis, a 2L who spent his last summer working at IJ in DC, will speak about his summer experience.

The Institute for Justice, the nation’s leading libertarian public-interest law firm, offers the best of both worlds: cutting-edge constitutional litigation on issues that actually matter to real people, combined with competitive pay. Sound interesting? Learn what steps you can take to put yourself on a path to litigating the kind of cases you read about in the newspaper and your casebooks.
