Post-Graduate Law Fellowship in the Florida Keys

Citizens Not Serfs is a grassroots community initiative geared at educating the residents of the Florida Keys about important issues, and providing them with resources to demand accountability from their public officials. The organization is currently seeking two recent law school graduates for two year staggered fellowships. The full-time position is available now and needs to be filled no later than July 2009.

The award includes a generous stipend of $50,000.00 and accommodations at the Summerland Key, Florida three-bedroom waterfront home.


The fellowship was established to provide the opportunity for a law student to be able to experience first-hand the confluence of federal, state and local public policy. The Fellow will collaborate with Citizens Not Serfs members, local and state public officials, FEMA representatives and local organizations. The responsibilities include research, consultation and community organizing.


Applicants should be motivated, flexible and have demonstrated academic excellence and a commitment to public interest law. A comfort with public speaking and community organizing is preferred and good computer skills are expected. Applicants must be law school graduates in good academic standing.

How to Apply:

Applications should include a cover letter, resume and two letters of recommendations. Applications are due ASAP. Please send applications to:
