Oct. 23: Public Defender Brown Bag Lunch Series

Posted on

Thinking about becoming a public defender?  Throughout the fall and spring, PILC is hosting brown bag lunches with public defender offices from around the country (see list below).  These informative discussions will give you the opportunity to learn about how to approach a career in public defense, to meet public defenders practicing all over the United States, and to find out about exciting internship and post-graduate opportunities in their offices.  Most of these lunches will be taking place on Fridays from 1-2pm, but a few lunches scheduled at other times will be marked with an asterisk below.  Please RSVP using the link below each office.


The Zoom link for all of the lunches will be https://nyu.zoom.us/j/96858125777 (Meeting ID 968 5812 5777).
