WLPPFP and LAWA Fellowship Program Now Accepting Applications
Invitation for Applications for WLPPFP and LAWA Fellowships at Georgetown Law:
Each year the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program (WLPPFP) at the Georgetown University Law Center offers fellowship positions providing educational and professional development opportunities for attorneys who are dedicated to using their legal talents to advance women's rights. We offer two types of fellowships. One type focuses on a 12 month work experience, where fellows from the United States work on women's legal issues with a public interest organization, a governmental agency, or as a clinical teaching fellow at Georgetown Law. The other type is our Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa (LAWA) Fellowship, where women's rights lawyers from Africa earn a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree from Georgetown Law focusing on international women’s human rights, and then participate in a post-graduation summer legal internship experience before returning home after the fellowship to continue advancing women’s rights in their own countries. Although each fellowship experience is unique, all of our fellows learn together about substantive women’s rights issues, explore a multitude of career paths through which they can advocate for women’s equality, and develop their legal skills through seminars, trainings, networking events and other activities provided by WLPPFP.
