Public Interest & Government Crawl 2011


Be sure to mark Wednesday, September 28 on your calendars!

PDO, in conjunction with PILO & And Justice For All, will sponsor a Public Interest/Government “Crawl” at the Community Legal Building on 205 N. 400 W. (just north of the Gateway mall).  Students will learn about careers within the public interest and government sectors, from the attorneys who practice in these settings on a daily basis.  To RSVP Click Here!

The format of the Crawl is as follows:

4:45-5:15: Check-in & Light Supper

· All participants should visit the check-in table to receive a nametag, room assignment & schedule. Refreshments will be available until the Crawl begins.

5:15-5:25: Welcome/Introduction by PILO & PDO

5:25-7:05: Agency Crawl

· There will be four tracks that the students will follow for the crawl, resulting in four separate information sessions.  For each session, we have asked each agency take 3-4 minutes to introduce themselves and briefly tell about their organization. There will be three or four agencies in each room, so we anticipate 15 minutes of introductions and 5 minutes for questions/answers during each session.   Each session will last approximately 20 minutes, allowing for a 5-minute rotation between sessions.

7:05-7:30: Closing Dessert Social

The following organizations have confirmed their participation in this event, although we anticipate that this list will continue to grow throughout the next few weeks:
