Post-Graduate Public Interest Fellowships

If you are a 2L or 3L seeking a post-graduate public interest fellowship to work at a nonprofit or civil legal services organization after graduation, now is the time to start researching and deciding which types of fellowships you want to apply to, e.g., project-based or organization-based. If project-based fellowships are of interest to you (EJW, Skadden, Justice Catalyst, Soros) you’ll need to find a placement this spring or summer ahead of early fall deadlines for Skadden and EJW.

Now is a great time to review our fellowship resources, list of alumni and faculty who have been fellows, and our Public Interest Funding Workshop Series recorded programs from this semester. If you plan to apply to fellowships, make sure to schedule an appointment with Michelle Grossfield in the CSO on SAGE.
