University of Miami School of Law Legal Corps

The University of Miami School of Law recently established Legal Corps, an ambitious postgraduate fellowship program which will place recent law graduates in government agencies, public interest organizations, and judicial chambers in Florida and throughout the country. The recent economic crisis has resulted in a reduction of funding for public sector agencies while the demand for legal services has dramatically increased. The goal of Legal Corps is to fill the gaps at these understaffed agencies by providing them with some of the most prepared, skilled and diverse individuals entering the legal community today. Below are responses to some of the most frequently asked questions about the fellowship program.

J.D. graduates of the University of Miami School of Law’s December 2009 and May 2010 classes who have been admitted to a state bar or are awaiting “character and fitness” results are eligible to apply for a Legal Corps fellowship.
