If you’re looking for a public interest or government job in the Midwest for next summer or after graduation, you should definitely participate in the Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference (MPILCC). This is a huge career fair where hundreds of interviews are conducted and many employers throughout the Midwest attend. It will take place on Saturday, February 3 at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in downtown Chicago. In January, all Notre Dame law students will receive an email inviting you to sign up for an MPILCC symplicity account. I will remind you of that email when it comes through in January.
Some of the employers who interviewed at the conference and career fair last year include the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office, Illinois Commerce Commission, Legal Aid of Western Ohio, Office of the Chief Counsel Department of Homeland Security ICE, U.S. Department of Education, and many others.
If you are at all interested in working in the Midwest either next summer or after graduation, this is not an opportunity to pass up. Some organizations do all of their hiring exclusively at MPILCC.
I have registered every Notre Dame Law Student for symplicity access so all of you will receive an email in January. If you do not want to participate, you can ignore the emails. If you do want to participate, sign up for an MPILCC symplicity account with the instructions in the email.
I will remind you of the email in January but just wanted to put this on your radar early.
