WELCOME to our new Fellows!
If you want to learn how to build your own practice, and you are committed to addressing the unmet legal needs for people of moderate incomes, consider joining our firm for a fellowship of one to two years. We offer intensive training, supervision and experience in a law firm devoted to minimizing the justice gap by providing high-quality civil legal services to moderate-income clients. We have a tailored continuing legal education curriculum focusing on substance and procedure of small-firm, solo and community legal practice. Supervision is provided by experienced attorneys and mentoring from members of the NYC bar and sponsoring law firms.
Applicants and fellows for the Program must meet the following criteria:
1) You must be a recent graduate of an ABA-accredited law school (within the last five years),
2) You must have passed the New York State bar exam and be otherwise eligible for, and in the process of, becoming licensed to practice in New York State,
3) You must be in good standing at all times during the fellowship,
4) You must demonstrate a commitment to ethically representing under-served populations, and
5) You must be interested in developing your own practice, devoted at least in part to serving moderate-income clients.
Applicants must submit:
- A resume;
- An unofficial law school transcript, to be followed by an official transcript when available;
- Two references, including one academic reference and one from a prior supervisor (employer, internship/externship supervisor, or other person who can describe the quality of the applicant's work in a professional setting and the applicant's ability to work well with others);
- A statement of interest describing why you might one day want to build a solo or small firm practice, and describing your commitment to providing legal services to people of moderate means.
Please send all applications, as well as questions regarding the Fellowship, to us via email.
