We reported earlier this week on the innovative program begun by UCLA School of Law to teach 3L students practice skills in order to give them a leg-up in this extremely difficult job market. Well, UT just launched its own version, this time with an emphasis on public service work.
Here are the details:
The University of Texas School of Law (UT Law) is proud to announce the Long Career Launch Program, which is designed to make it financially possible for our recent graduates to obtain legal work experience in unpaid internships while they are awaiting bar results and looking for permanent employment. Graduates who are selected to participate in the Program, which is generously funded by a grant from the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Foundation, will receive a $6,000 stipend to support work in an unpaid legal internship with a government agency or a 501(c)(3) public interest organization.
Hat tip to our good buddies at Above the Law.
I am the scholarship dude.
