Hey all! I will be blogging about little known resources available to law students this semester. For those of you who are interested in finding new sources for job postings be sure to check out my blog posts.
This week I checked out the Equal Justice Works website. Equal Justice Works is all about helping the community and has fellowships available for those who share that same interest. This site can be visited at http://www.equaljusticeworks.org, and I have to admit I really liked this website. What I like most, is how easy it was to use! Immediately once you get onto the page, there are tabs and links to get you exactly where you want to be. For instance, the webpage encourages you to click on the action that you want to do and gives choices like “Apply for a 2013 Equal Justice Fellowship”. So if you are looking to apply to fellowships, it is just a click away, or if you want to just view fellowships that are available, you can click on that option. I also appreciated the breakdown of sections on the webpage. There is an area for pre-law students, current law students, and graduates. This can be useful for anyone, no matter where they are in their legal education career.
Additionally, I liked how after clicking “apply for a fellowship,” I was guided to a page that broke down the dates and deadlines for the application process. This page also gave information about qualifications and expectations for those interested in the fellowships. In my personal experience, I have found websites where I had to download the application just to get an idea of what the qualifications were to apply for the position.
If you are truly interested in public service, I encourage you to check out this website for more information. Also, be sure to speak with Linda Lorenz in the Career Development Office, as she is all things public interest. She can help you in any way that you need. Until next time colleagues, Happy Job Hunting!
