Interested in Project-Based Public Interest Fellowships?

NALP, in partnership with the Washington Council of Lawyers, is hosting a program to offer best practices on the project-based fellowship application process. For those of you who are based in the Washington, DC area this summer, here are the details. 

Interested in project-based public interest fellowships, like those funded by Equal Justice Works and the Skadden Foundation?  NALP and the Washington Council of Lawyers are pleased to present “The Pathway to Postgraduate Public Interest Legal Fellowships” on Tuesday, July 14th, from 6:00-8:30 p.m. at the Washington, DC offices of Akin Gump. 

The event will double as a happy hour, offering networking opportunities and a chance for public-interest minded law students in the nation’s capital to meet like-minded peers.

The formal portion of the program will be led by a distinguished panel, the members of which all have extensive experience with the fellowship proposal process:

  • Lauren Dubin, Director for Public Interest and Government Careers, Georgetown University Law Center (Moderator)
  • Patty Mullahy Fugere, Executive Director, Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless
  • Jennifer Tschirch, Senior Program Manager for Fellowships, Equal Justice Works
  • Kati Daffan, Staff Attorney, Federal Trade Commission (and former Skadden Fellow)
