CAREER SERVICES: Fellowships 101 – Washington Council of Lawyers

The Washington Council of Lawyers is offering ASU Law students and alumni this online training for FREE.

Fellowships 101 has gone virtual! And that means law students from across the country can join us to learn how to craft their application to land their dream public-interest job. 

Post-graduate fellowships are a unique opportunity to chart your own path to career fulfillment by choosing work that is important to you and will make a significant impact on issues of public concern. Fellows gain significant hands-on experience early in their career, get a chance to develop project management skills, and have the opportunity pursue their passions for promoting justice. But the application process is complicated and highly competitive.

Fellowships 101, to be held on Wednesday, June 10, from 12-1:30 pm EST, will give you the inside insights and concrete guidance to help make your application attractive to funders. Register here.

Registration Code: PIJCFellow2020   

Our expert panel of current fellows, fellowship coordinators and fellow supervisors will walk you through the application process highlighting areas of most importance and give you the inside track on what makes a successful fellowship package.

Our panel includes:

  • Patty Mullahy Fugere – Executive Director, Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless
  • Sharion Scott – Skadden Fellow, Advancement Project
  • Kerry Stotler – Fellowships Program Manager, Equal Justice Works
  • Connor McCleskey – Justice Catalyst Fellow, Worth Rises

The panel will be moderated by Amelia Kegan, Legislative Director at the Friends Committee on National Legislation, Washington Council of Lawyers Board member, and former fellow. 

Then, you will find out how to search for fellowship project ideas, host organizations and other resources online on PSJD.

Fellowships 101 is appropriate for all law students. Rising 3L students thinking about applying for fellowships this fall need this information now. But rising 2Ls and even 1Ls can benefit from advance planning. If you’re not a law student, please share with any you know.

The program is free for Washington Council of Lawyers members (join) and law students of Public Interest Jobs Clearinghouse subscriber schools. It’s $5 for all others.

Thanks to NALP for co-sponsoring this event.
