  • 15 Jun 2013
  • BayLegal
BayLegal invites law students beginning their third year and recent law school graduates to propose innovative fellowship projects for 2014 for submission to the Skadden Fellowship Foundation, Equal Justice Works, Soros Justice Fellowship Program and/or similar programs. Project ideas should relate to one or more of BayLegal's substantive practice areas:
  • Domestic Violence Prevention and Immigration Relief
  • Housing Preservation
  • Health Care Access
  • Economic Security
  • Consumer Assistance
BayLegal will consider fellowship proposals drafted by applicants, or assist candidates to design a project in one of our main practice areas based on the candidate's own interests and the needs of the community.

Factors that will be considered in evaluating candidates for sponsorship include:
  • Demonstrated commitment to public interest law;
  • Knowledge of or strong interest in the subject-matter of the proposed fellowship;
  • Membership in a minority population served by BayLegal, including the LGBT community;
  • Fluency in a non-English language spoken by many of BayLegal's clients;
  • Excellence in oral, written and legal research skills;
  • Anticipated or current California Bar membership.
Interested candidates should e-mail the following materials:
  • Cover letter
  • Resume
  • One-page summary of fellowship proposal or statement concerning the priority area in which you would like to develop a project;
  • List of three references
  • Writing sample
Direct materials and inquiries to Jerel McCrary at fellows@baylegal.org on or before June 15, 2013.
BayLegal will work closely with successful applicants to design the final project proposal.
