Fellowship Description
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.
