Are you looking for a unique post-bar opportunity? 2Ls, 3Ls, and recent graduates should consider using the summer to apply for project-based fellowships, that typically begin in the fall (often one year out). Fellowships are highly competitive and provide a unique opportunity to jumpstart a career in law, so it’s never too early to start planning. Fellows are able to use their legal skills to affect positive change for disadvantaged populations while receiving top-rate training and supervision. You’ll further refine many of the skills developed through externships and clinics, and the experience will be very desirable when applying for future positions. PSJD gave some great tips last summer which still apply today, on how to begin your fellowship search and how to organize your project with a funding organization and a host organization. You should also contact the McGeorge Career Development Office to refine your application materials and take advantage of our connections with a number of organizations and contacts across the nation.
