For the third year, the Vietnamese American Bar Association of Northern California (VABANC) is pleased to announce that it will be receiving applications for its $30,000 public interest law fellowship program. The deadline is December 3, 2012.
This Fellowship Program will fund one law graduate who will work for one year to provide legal services to and advocacy for the Vietnamese American community and/or other underserved, underresourced communities.
The objective of the Fellowship is to provide legal services on issues related to racial/ethnic communities in the law and to improve the quality of legal services delivered to underserved minority populations, including but not limited to the Vietnamese American community. The Fellowship will thus support a law graduate whose work will support underserved, underrepresented communities in an increasingly diverse state and nation.
