The Francis D. Murnaghan, Jr. Appellate Advocacy Fellowship allows a recent law graduate who has completed a judicial clerkship to spend a year engaging in appellate advocacy in the areas of civil rights and poverty law. The Fellow works at the Public Justice Center in our Appellate Advocacy Project. Applications for the 2020-2021 Fellowship were due by October 21, 2019. Please visit the Murnaghan Fellowship website for further information and application instructions.
The PJC generally will consider sponsoring fellowships in project areas that complement or expand our work. Law students who are interested in a fellowship with the PJC should contact the PJC and be prepared to develop their proposals sufficiently in advance of the deadline to allow the PJC to review. With most fellowships, the PJC will only sponsor one student per fellowship per year. To be considered for a fellowship, please send a letter of interest and resume to Executive Director John Nethercut.
The PJC usually offers summer internship opportunities to law students. Applications for the summer of 2020 are now closed.
The PJC welcomes interns throughout the year whose interests, abilities, and availability match with a current need of the staff. To be considered, please send a resume and letter explaining your interest, abilities, and availability to David Rodwin and Matt Hill.
