PILnet Fellowship, Lawyering in the Age of Globalization

PILnet invites recent law graduates and students in their final year of study toward degrees in public interest law and related fields to apply for a fellowship at its New York office to begin in Summer 2018.

PILnet is an international non-profit organization that is changing the way people think about public interest law. By bringing the public and private sectors of the legal profession together, PILnet is unlocking law’s full potential to manage risks and protect the interests of everyone. This fellowship will provide an experiential learning opportunity in an emerging area of public interest lawyering that takes the techniques that have historically been used to benefit a powerful few and puts them to work for the most vulnerable.

Applications will be accepted beginning March 1, 2018, on a rolling basis until all positions are filled.
