PCDC – Dean’s Summer Pro Bono and Public Interest Law Fellowships Program

Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Sarkeys Law Center Room 104
5:00 to 5:45 pm

Interested in Pro Bono, Public Interest, Government, or Non-Profit work but don’t think you can afford to work for free? Well, now you can!  

Each year, a group of 20 students who have internships or clerkships in the areas above are selected to receive a summer fellowship (living stipend). This is an incredible way to work in an area in which you are passionate while also receiving compensation! While the process is competitive and the expectations are high, the experience and training are unparalleled.

Please join us to learn more about the Dean’s Summer Pro Bono and Public Interest Law Fellowships program and hear from past recipients.
