Fellowship Opportunity - Loyola's Center for Juvenile Law and Policy
Loyola Law School’s Center for Juvenile Law and Policy will award two summer fellowships made possible by the W.M. Keck Foundation, to law students who have demonstrated a commitment to public interest law, criminal defense and children’s issues. The fellowship provides a generous stipend for two months beginning June 1, 2009.
The summer fellowship will be a unique opportunity for law students to practice law under the supervision of clinical faculty at the Loyola Law School Center for Juvenile Law and Policy. Fellows will provide case management for our active clients and will be responsible for all other aspects of legal representation. Summer fellows will be required to appear in court on behalf of our clients and, as such, must be certified by the California Bar in order to provide legal services under the supervision of an attorney. Candidates must have completed civil procedure and evidence prior to the appointment. Fellows can expect to be exposed to a broad range of juvenile justice issues and will be expected to participate in initiatives that the Center undertakes during the summer.
Applications are to be submitted to the Center for Juvenile Law and Policy at Loyola Law School, 919 Albany Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015, by 5 p.m., November 18, 2008. Faxed applications will not be accepted. The application should include: a cover letter, a copy of the applicant’s resume, an official law school transcript through Fall 2008, and one letter of reference. The reference letter should be sent directly to the Center from the author. The cover letter should describe the candidate’s interest in juvenile criminal defense practice and how the fellowship fits into the candidate’s future professional interests.
For information on certification by the State Bar of California, please go to the California Bar website. -jl
