Fellowship Opportunities – Charlottesville, Falls Church or Richmond
The Legal Aid Justice Center seeks to host one or more recent law graduates as Equal Justice Works, Skadden or other privately-funded public service fellows in one of our three offices in Virginia. Depending on individual interest and location preference, the fellow may work on one or several of various poverty law issues such as immigrant advocacy, public benefits, affordable housing, consumer protection, employment, health, education, or juvenile justice. Past fellows have had the opportunity to assist with clinical supervision, staff high impact cases with nation-wide implications, and participate in legislative advocacy. The fellowship candidate must be a third-year law student or recent law school graduate with a demonstrated record of public service and a willingness to apply for public interest law fellowships. In considering hosting an applicant, we want to talk with you about cutting edge issues in our practice which we believe will merit a fellowship, and we will actively assist the candidate in developing a project and preparing application materials. The positions are dependent upon the candidate’s ability to secure a fully funded public interest fellowship. Deadline for applications is June 30, 2017. Full Description (PDF)
