The Janet D. Steiger Fellowship Project (Summer 2012)

The ABA Section of Antitrust Law will again sponsor the Janet D. Steiger Fellowship Opportunity project that is open to 1Ls and 2Ls only.  Students will submit an application to be placed for a minimum of eight weeks during the summer of 2012 in the consumer protection department of one of 23 participating State Attorneys General offices, Georgia Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs, State of Hawaii, and the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs.  Please view all participating offices on the website and in the application form.

Each selected student will receive a $5,000 stipend for the summer (administered through the offices of the state attorneys general and subject to certain federal taxes).  The Project, in its discretion offers an optional small supplemental housing/travel allowance (administered through the American Bar Association Section of antitrust Law) where a clear need is demonstrated.  This supplemental allowance will not be considered until after Fellows have been selected.
