Freedman Justice Fellows Program 2017-2018 Application Deadline

Program Overview

The Freedman Justice Fellows Program trains law students throughout their three years to become skilled, thoughtful counselors and leaders who will be effective advocates to promote the public interest. This comprehensive program exposes students to significant and exciting issues in public interest law through active engagement in a range of events, including informal luncheons, programs, and conferences. Freedman Justice Fellows are expected to take an active role in developing, organizing, and participating in the Program’s sponsored events, drawing on the unique interests and expertise that they bring to the Law School. As important as any of these events, the Program seeks to create and nurture a strong community within the law school for those dedicated to public service. The Fellows are paired with faculty and alumni mentors, who will provide academic and career guidance.
