Post-graduate fellowships are a unique way to realize your ideal public interest job. Fellowships allow new lawyers to gain hands-on experience, develop project management skills, and pursue their passions for promoting justice. But the application process is complicated and the programs are competitive.
That’s why rising 2nd and 3rd-year law students should attend Fellowships 101: our fun and informative introduction to post-graduate public-interest fellowships.
Our expert panel will walk you through all the steps of the application process and give you concrete tips for maximizing your chances of landing the fellowship of your dreams. Then, Sam Halpert with NALP will discuss PSJD and other online resources for finding fellowships. Finally, there will be plenty of time for individualized questions.
Our panel includes:
- Patty Mullahy Fugere – Executive Director, Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless
- Sharion Scott – Skadden Fellow, Advancement Project
- Kerry Stotler – Fellowships Program Manager, Equal Justice Works
- Connor McCleskey – Justice Catalyst Fellow, Worth Rises
The panel will be moderated by Amelia Kegan, Legislative Director, Friends Committee on National Legislation; Washington Council of Lawyers Board member; and former fellow.
Fellowships 101 is free for Washington Council of Lawyers members (join) and law students of Public Interest Jobs Clearinghouse (PIJC) subscriber law schools; the cost is just $5 for non-members.
