Important Public Interest
Fellowship Application Available

For those interested in public interest law, the Equal Justice Works (EJW) Fellowship is an incredibly important and significant piece of experience to have on your resume.

The 2009 online EJW Fellowship application is now available here.


Review the application ASAP. EJW recommends that prospective candidates review the online application form as soon as possible to familiarize themselves with how it works and to consider the necessary items required to apply - the online application, the Certification Form (signed by both the candidate and the host organization), and up to two letters of recommendation.

Begin working on the application early. Our online application now offers two functions to create an application. The Formatted Edit function will allow you to use spell check and special formatting such as bold text, bullets, and italics. The Basic Edit function does not support spell check or any special formatting such as bold, italics or bulleted text. Please use the Basic Edit function if your browser has any difficulty editing using the Formatted Edit. The lack of formatting will not negatively affect consideration of applications. There are character limits noted for each box, and character counts may differ between a word processing program and the application. It is therefore important for candidates to paste the text into the application well in advance of the deadline to ensure that the text fits in the allotted space.

Hard copy documents must be received by September 16th. The deadline for submission of the application, which is done online, is 5 pm EDT on September 16th. A signed Certification Form and up to 2 recommendation letter(s) must be received by Equal Justice Works no later than September 16th. These items must be mailed or hand delivered. Faxes and email will not be accepted.
