To apply for a fellowship with LCD you must be dedicated to public interest law and have experience of, or a strong interest in, dealing with low-income individuals.
We sponsor law students and lawyers for fellowships funded by the Independence Foundation, the Skadden Fellowship Foundation, Equal Justice Works.
As a fellow you’ll work directly with our experienced staff attorneys and be supervised by our Managing Attorney. As a fellow you’ll carry your own caseload whilst gaining in depth experience across the many areas of law that we handle.
Fellows carry their own caseload and gain valuable experience in providing a wide range of services, from brief advice and counsel to representation at administrative hearings, judicial proceedings, and appeals. Fellows can also involved in any policy and advocacy work. Past fellows have provided crucial advocacy for our clients, contributed greatly to our development, and many have become long-term members of our staff.
