Great community economic development fellowship at Yale Law:
YALE LAW SCHOOL LUDWIG CLINICAL FELLOWSHIP
In the Community and Economic Development Clinic
Yale Law School seeks applications for a Ludwig Clinical Fellowship for a two-year position beginning on July 1, 2013.

This year we are looking for a Fellow with particular experience in community development financial institutions, but will consider applicants who have other relevant experience. The Fellow will be allowed sufficient time, resources and assistance to engage in research and writing. All work will be conducted with the assistance of the clinical faculty.
