The Lawyers’ Committee annually sponsors the George N. Lindsay Civil Rights Fellowship for a recent law school graduate who demonstrates an exceptional commitment to racial justice and to building a career in civil rights law.

Lindsay Fellows work closely with leading civil rights experts in their project focus area, providing support for and expanding the breadth of the Lawyers’ Committee work on the cutting edge of civil rights practice. Past Lindsay Fellows have continued to work with the Lawyers’ Committee as permanent counsel, or gone on to obtain positions at other top civil rights organizations.

The Lawyers’ Committee also sponsors fellows through the Skadden, Equal Justice Works, Justice Catalyst, and other fellowship and grant programs.
