It just may be the first legal job fair of its kind: The job seekers don't expect to get paid by the recruiting organizations, and the recruiting organizations don't expect the job seekers to stick around for more than a year. That's the idea behind an event next week in Newark, N.J., that aims to connect incoming associates who have deferred start dates with public interest law organizations that want some virtually free temporary help. The Volunteer Lawyers for Justice is organizing the fair in response to the confusion and concerns regarding law firms' public interest programs for deferred incoming associates.
