Public Interest Law Fellowships

The Summer Public Interest Law Fellowship program at Touro Law Center helps encourage and facilitate the placement of students in public interest legal work.
Each year, a limited number of upper-division students are selected for summer positions with public interest law employers. Public interest legal employment, for purposes of the Fellowship Program, is defined as legal work performed under the supervision of an attorney engaged in poverty law, civil rights law or public rights law, including representing charitable organizations. Judicial Clerkships will not be funded by the program.

These Fellows receive a $7,315 stipend from the Law Center for 10 weeks of employment. To be eligible, students must submit an application detailing their commitment to public interest employment, including a current law school transcript and letter of reference. Applications are reviewed and recipients are selected by the Public Interest Law Fellowship Committee.
