Together the Chicago Area Law School Consortium organizes several annual events for students and employers including those detailed below.

The Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference enables employers from public interest and government organizations and J.D. students to gather for a day of interviews and informal networking. MPILCC is held each February at Northwestern University School of Law.
