The purpose of the fellowship is to help state and local government offices expand their capacity to do affirmative litigation by focusing on their current staff. The fellowship is open to current state and local government attorneys and includes one year of training, professional development, and hands-on mentoring, plus access to a national network of government impact litigators. Fellows remain in their government positions during the program.
This video and document provide more information about the fellowship, including reflections from past participants.
Interested attorneys whose offices support their participation can submit applications until March 6, 2020. Lawyers can also nominate a colleague for the fellowship. Your name will not be revealed to the prospective candidates you nominate.
