Are you interested in a career in public interest law? Have you considered becoming an Equal Justice Works Fellow? EJW is currently accepting applications for two summer fellowships:
- Rural Summer Legal Corps (due February 8, 2021): Partnering with Legal Services Corporation (LSC), Equal Justice Works provides law students with an opportunity to serve rural communities by providing direct legal services such as affordable housing and farmworkers’ rights, engaging in community outreach and education, and supporting resource development and training sessions. The fellowship will take place over the course of eight to ten weeks.
- Disaster Resilience Program (due February 16, 2021): As a Student Fellow, accepted applicants will provide free civil legal assistance to disaster-prone areas, such as Texas and Florida. Student Fellows will assist an Equal Justice Works Fellow in improving disaster preparedness and recovery from natural disasters, as well as things such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.
All 1L and 2L students are encouraged to apply to these exciting opportunities, where you will gain invaluable experience and strengthen your legal network. Learn more about the available fellowships here, and be sure to have your resume reviewed by the CDO by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For those interested in working with non-profit and government agencies, be sure to also attend the Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair this October, the largest public interest career fair and interview program in the country. More information will be released later this year.
