Brand Pursuit Of Justice Fellowship
Alumni and Friends of Dean Jeffrey Brand are raising funds for post-graduate fellowships in his honor. The idea for the Brand Pursuit of Justice Fellowship was generated by alumni and friends of the law school as a way to thank Dean Brand for his years of service as Dean and, most importantly, to help those to whom his work is dedicated – the law students of the University of San Francisco.
Dean Brand often reminds us that our graduates are incredibly smart, diverse, and committed to making a difference in the world. A Pursuit of Justice Fellowship seems a particularly appropriate idea that is consistent with the mission of the law school, Dean Brand’s hopes for his students, and the difficult times in which students find themselves today. The fellowship will provide an opportunity for recent graduates to use their legal skills and to pursue their dreams that brought them to the law school. Simply stated, the intent of the Fellowship is to encourage and support new graduates who wish to pursue work that promotes the mission of the law school – Educating for Justice to Change the World from Here.
The Brand Fellowship will provide a law graduate who has passed the bar exam, with at least one year employment at a local, national or international organization engaged in legal and/or policy work consistent with the mission of the USF School of Law. Fellows will have the opportunity to strengthen their legal practice skills and to utilize those skills in an environment reflective of the law school’s commitment to social justice.
