The Justice Fellowship
Loevy & Loevy is accepting applications for the 2018 Justice Fellowship.
The Justice Fellowship offers new attorneys committed to civil rights and criminal justice an unparalleled opportunity to work on trial and appellate litigation at the very beginning of their careers. Our fellows will participate in all aspects of our wrongful conviction, civil rights, and whistleblower practices.
Loevy & Loevy will select up to two Fellows to join the firm during the fall of 2018. Fellows are expected to commit to a two-year term. Compensation is $65,000 per year with full benefits.
Fellows will be responsible for participating in Loevy & Loevy’s civil trial teams, taking depositions of defendants and third-party witnesses, writing legal briefs for federal district courts and courts of appeals, and conducting investigations and witness interviews in support of pending cases.
In doing so, fellows will be trained by experienced civil rights litigators. The fellowship program includes seminars; direct mentoring relationships; opportunities for participatory and observational learning in trials, appellate arguments, depositions, and settlement conferences; and other training experiences unavailable in entry-level positions elsewhere. Fellows have the benefit of immediate participation in high-level litigation work while enjoying the support of the fellowship experience to learn and grow as attorneys.
Loevy & Loevy is in search of candidates with exemplary credentials to serve as Fellows. Preference will be given to applicants who have completed judicial clerkships or public-interest fellowships, and to those with a keen interest in trial practice, stellar academic and publication records, and clinical experience. A demonstrated commitment to public interest law, civil rights, and criminal justice is important.
Loevy & Loevy is now accepting applications for the Justice Fellowship. To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, references, and a sample of your writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please tell us in your cover letter what it is about your personal background and experience that drives your interest in civil rights work. Applications will be accepted from students completing their final year of law school in 2018, from recent graduates, and from current judicial law clerks and fellows. There is no application deadline. Interview candidates will be selected on a rolling basis starting November 15, 2017.
