Post-Graduate Fellowship: Diversity Fellowships with the Federal Defender
The Federal Defender Services has announced a Diversity Fellowship for the next generation of public defenders. Defense work in the federal defender system is especially important for immigrant rights given the impact of criminal convictions on noncitizens, and the federal government's role in prosecuting immigration crime.
The Diversity Fellowship is for two years and designed to train new attorneys in criminal defense and representation.
