Fall Semester
Federal Work Study Grants Available

Through the Federal Work-Study Program (FWSP), Touro Law Center plans to provide approximately five-to ten work-study stipends to students willing to work as interns with the agencies housed in Touro’s Public Advocacy Center (PAC) and PAC affiliates in public interest legal positions this semester. The stipend will pay $ 10.00 per hour for 12-15 hours per week for the remainder of the fall 2007 semester. Submissions will be reviewed on a first come, first served basis and should, therefore, be submitted as soon as possible.

To apply, students must submit a Letter of Intent to Thomas Maligno, Executive Director of the Public Advocacy Center at The Letter should state which agency you want to work for and why. After receipt of your letter, Tom will transmit it to the appropriate agency that must approve Tom’s placement of you with them. Please speak to Tom if you have questions about the work that each agency does.

All of the PAC agency descriptions are listed on the CSO website under the public interest job listing section. All PAC agencies are eligible placements and many of the agencies already have job descriptions on the Career Services’ job posting site here.

Students should also speak with Michelle Kaminski, Director of Financial Aid, concerning their eligibility to participate in Tour’s FWSB program.
