2010 Summer Fellows Program at Legal Services of Greater Miami

Legal Services of Greater Miami, Inc. (“LSGMI”) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Stearns Weaver Miller 2010 Summer Fellows Program.

Stearns Weaver Miller is the generous founding sponsor of three summer fellows at LSGMI. The mission of the Summer Fellows Program is to foster a life-long commitment to public interest work, to encourage substantive knowledge in the assigned practice areas, and to provide the Fellows an opportunity to interface with the low income communities of Miami-Dade County. 

The Summer Fellows Program will afford three rising third-year law students (one from each of the three Miami-Dade law schools) the opportunity to become immersed in public interest law. The criteria used by LSGMI to select the Fellows will include a demonstrated commitment to public interest work and a strong academic background. 

During the 12 week program each Fellow will be exposed to an in-house rotation, working alongside experienced LSGMI attorneys. Assignments will include research, writing, client interviews and community education and outreach. Fellows will receive guidance and mentoring from LSGMI staff attorneys. 

Information about the program and application materials can be accessed on the Student Portal or you can also ask your Career Development Office (“CDO”) advisor.
