2023 LEGAL FELLOWSHIP

The Fellowship is designed to train and empower new lawyers to advance social justice movements in the Global South through immersive practice in human rights advocacy within a solidarity framework. The Fellow will start in September (negotiable). Fellows must secure funding from an outside source (e.g. a law school, foundation, law firm, or other funding opportunity) to support the Fellowship. Deadline to apply: Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
