Kerr Lounge was lined with employers representing 15 different public interest organizations from across the country for OU Law’s Public Interest Career Fair. At the event, hosted by the Office of Career Development, students had the chance to interact with and distribute resumes to potential employers. It was a great opportunity for them to obtain externships and internships with public interest organizations. It also allowed the organizations to market themselves and their internship programs to the students who are actively seeking public interest positions.
The represented organizations are listed below:
Catholic Charities of Dallas
Legal Aid Norman
Legal Aid Stillwater
Legal Aid Oklahoma City
Norman City Attorney
Oklahoma Supreme Court Mediation
Oklahoma County District Attorney’s office
