Since 1972, the National Women’s Law Center has led the way in expanding the possibilities for women and girls in our country. The Center uses the law in all its forms: getting new laws on the books; litigating ground-breaking lawsuits all the way to the Supreme Court; and educating the public about how to make the law and public policies work for women and their families. The Center’s experienced staff take on the issues that cut to the core of women’s and girls’ lives in health and reproductive rights, education, employment, and family economic security, with special priority given to the needs of low-income women and their families.
The Center is now recruiting rising third-year law students, judicial clerks, and other recent law school graduates interested in applying for Skadden, Equal Justice Works, or other law fellowships to begin in September 2013, to discuss their interest in basing a fellowship project at the Center. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis with priority given to those received earliest.
The fellow will support the Center’s work in one or more of the following program areas: Health and Reproductive Rights, Family Economic Security, or Education and Employment. Some specific project ideas are described below, but applicants may draft their own project descriptions for consideration. Responsibilities may include researching and analyzing policy and legal issues; drafting a variety of materials, such as memos, fact sheets, reports, comments on regulations, and legal briefs; and working with national and state-based coalitions.
