Skadden Fellow Sponsorship
Each year, the LAS–ELC sponsors a recent law school graduate’s application for a Skadden Fellowship to work at the Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center. The two-year fellowship offers training in litigation as well as other aspects of public interest practice. The Skadden Fellowship Foundation awards approximately 25 fellowships each year to graduating law students and outgoing judicial clerks. Fellows develop projects that provide legal services to the poor, elderly, homeless, disabled, and others who are deprived of human or civil rights. The LAS–ELC works closely with the applicant throughout the fellowship application process.
The LAS–ELC may also sponsor candidates for Equal Justice Works, or other fellowship programs.
