Skadden Foundation is pleased to invite applications for the Skadden Fellowship Program. The fellowship is exclusively open to law school graduates and outgoing judicial law clerks who want to work in the public interest. Those are selected will receive benefits of interesting salary. The closing date of application is October 2, 2017.
The Skadden Foundation is now accepting an application for its Fellowship Program. The program is intended to a recognition of the dire need for greater funding for graduating law students who wish to devote their professional lives to providing legal services to the poor (including the working poor), the elderly, the homeless and the disabled, as well as those deprived of their civil or human rights. The fellows create their own projects at public interest organizations with at least two lawyers on staff before they apply and will improve the legal services available to the less fortunate in our society.
- Skadden provides each fellow with a salary and pays all fringe benefits to which an employee of the sponsoring organization would be entitled.
- For those fellows not covered by a law school low-income protection plan, the firm will pay a fellow’s law school debt service for the tuition part of the loan for the duration of the fellowship.
