Columbia Law School Announces Social Justice Fellowships

Columbia Law School has announced its Social Justice Pathways Fellowship program, which is basically equivalent to the kinds of public interest fellowships that large firms have been offering their deferred associates.

From the press release:

I [Dean David Schizer] am delighted to announce the creation of five new fellowship opportunities for graduates pursuing careers in public interest law and government service: the Social Justice Pathways Fellowships. Each of the fellowships will carry a $25,000 stipend to fund up to eight months of work. The members of the J.D. Class of 2009 are the first class eligible to become Social Justice Pathways Fellows…

The Social Justice Pathways Fellowships will be awarded to five graduates in the J.D. Class of 2009, presently unemployed, who seek job opportunities in public interest or government law offices…

Interested students are required to notify the Law School of their intent to apply for a Social Justice Pathways Fellowship by the end of May.
