Call for Fellowship Applications
Lawyering in the Age of Globalization
PILnet is excited to announce the launch of its redesigned Residential Fellowship Program that will begin in summer 2017. PILnet invites recent law graduates and those currently completing relevant degrees in public interest law to apply for this new fellowship, which offers a unique experience to re-envision the way that effective public interest lawyering can be done in our globalized world.
This fellowship will provide an experiential learning opportunity in a new area of public interest lawyering that takes the techniques that have historically been used to benefit a powerful few and puts them to work for the poor and disenfranchised. Fellows at PILnet will acquire the skills to adopt the private sector’s transactional lawyering tools (those day-to-day activities—such as negotiating, drafting contracts, and helping to structure transactions), and focus on innovative ways of putting them to work for the public interest.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2017 – 2018 Fellowship. Please check back for an announcement for the 2018 – 2019 cohorts.
