Academic/Clinical Fellowships

These fellowship opportunities allow a fellow to teach and/or research in an academic setting.

    • Clinical
    • Constitutional Law
    • International Law
    • Law, Economics, and Business
    • Law, Science, and Technology
    • Legal Profession
    • Legal Research and Writing
    • Negotiation and Mediation
    • Public Interest
  • California Western School of Law, Teaching Fellows Program: Two-year program for practicing lawyers to transition into a career of teaching and scholarship. The Fellowship program accentuates both teaching and scholarship.
  • Georgetown University Law Center, Clinical Graduate Fellowships: Fellowships for new and experienced attorneys to combine study with practice in the fields of clinical legal education and public interest advocacy.
  • Loyola Law School Center for Juvenile Law and Policy: Two-year fellowship for recent law school graduates who possess a demonstrated interest in indigent juvenile defense and juvenile justice issues.  The fellowship is designed to provide a well developed practical skill-set as well as clinical teaching experience.
