2012-14 NALP Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Project Fellowship
This two-year fellowship provides a wonderful opportunity for a public interest-minded
law graduate who also has an interest in education and diversity in the legal profession.
The NALP/Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Program, a joint initiative undertaken by
both organizations in 2008, is designed to provide information about the law and the
legal profession to high school students and encourage them to pursue legal careers.
Law firms that participate in the program are matched with local high schools where
volunteer lawyers teach substantive law classes in the high school setting as well as
host programs for participating high school students at the law firm. Additionally, law
firm and high school partners are encouraged to work with a law school and to facilitate
additional enhancement activities for the most interested students. The Fellow will
administer this program and support its growth. The fellow will have responsibility for
providing training, curriculum development assistance, and planning support to
participating law firms, law schools, and high schools. (To learn more about the
program and current participants, view http://www.nalp.org/streetlaw.)

Announcing Table Talk!
Georgetown/George Washington Law Public Sector Recruiting Program
Saturday, January 28, 2012
GW Marvin Center, 800 21st Street, NW, 3rd Floor, Washington, DC
Please remember to visit employers that are participating in the Table Talk session at the Public Sector Recruiting Program on Saturday, January 28th from 10:00 to 12:30 (AM Session) and 1:00 to 3:30 (PM session) at the GW Marvin Center. Table Talk is an opportunity for students and employers to meet and speak informally about summer, academic year and entry-level opportunities. It is not necessary to have bid or have scheduled interviews through PSRP to attend Table Talk. It is a good idea to dress professionally, come prepared with questions and bring extra copies of your resume to submit to Table Talk employers.
See below for the current list of Table Talk employers (all employers are located in DC, unless otherwise noted). Employers continue to register, so check Symplicity and the OPICS website for updates.
