New York City Bar's Thurgood Marshall Fellowship Program

The New York City Bar Association has announced this year's Thurgood Marshall Fellowship Program. This program provides an opportunity for second and third year minority law students from New York area law schools to work with the Association on community legal services or civil rights projects that are the legacy of Justice Marshall. One student from participating schools will be selected as a Fellow for the 2010-2011 academic year. The Fellow will be required to make a commitment to work an average of ten hours per week in our City Bar Justice Center and with our Civil Rights Committee and will receive a stipend of $3,000 for the year.

Anyone interested in applying must submit a resume, a one page essay outlining your interest in becoming a Thurgood Marshall Fellow and a writing sample (no more than 5 pages) to Erica Edwards-O’Neal in the Career Services Office no later than Thursday, March 25.
