Post-Graduate Fellowships Through Equal Justice Works

Equal Justice Works has combined recruitment efforts for their three postgraduate programs. Applications for most of these programs open on July 6, 2012.

The three programs are:

AmeriCorps Legal Fellowships : In partnership with AmeriCorps, this program allows Fellows to promote public service at law schools by facilitating pro bono opportunities and training for other students. A living allowance is provided and an educational award is earned after successful completion of the program.

Equal Justice Works Fellowships: As a participant in the largest postgraduate legal fellowship program in the U.S., Equal Justice Works Fellows create dream jobs with nonprofit organizations. Fellows receive a salary and are eligible for loan repayment assistance.

Public Defender Corps: Equal Justice Works and the Southern Public Defender Training Center have partnered to improve the quality of representation for adults and juveniles nationwide. This three-year fellowship program addresses the ongoing national crisis of providing quality representation to accused persons who cannot afford counsel.
