Public Interest Summer Job Hunt Webinars

Still looking for a public interest summer position? Need some tips and tricks? Well, you're in luck! NALP and Equal Justice Works have made their webinars available to stream online. And, since they are free, it's definitely worth checking out.

The groups put on two webinars during January: The Summer Public Interest Job Search Part I — Best Practices in Drafting Cover Letters and Resumes and The Summer Public Interest Job Search Part II — Best Practices in Interviewing and In-person Networking. You can get links to both webinars as well as PDFs of the slides on NALP's website.

Time to Celebrate

Remember that asylum case I was working on? Ok, you probably don't. I wrote about it back in March 2011. Anyway, it took longer than expected to get an interview date, and then it took seven months to get a decision.

Well I finally have happy news to share. Last week, I found out that my sweet, amazing, wonderful fifteen year old client was granted asylum! I couldn't be more excited for her.
