The ABA Commission on Homelessness and Poverty is seeking motivated law student interns to apply for stipends available for the Summer 2014 Program.
The Program will pay a $2,500 stipend to three law school students who spend the summer months working for a bar association or legal services program designed to prevent homelessness or assist homeless or indigent clients or their advocates. The Legal Internship Program will provide much-needed legal assistance to organizations serving the under-represented and give students direct experience in a public interest forum. Through this, it aims both to help homeless clients and to encourage careers in the law that further the goals of social justice. Students must already have a position offered, contingent on funding, from a qualified organization.
This fellowship is open to all law students and first year law students are encouraged to apply.
All applications must be received by Monday, March 31, 2014. Early submissions are welcome. The complete application can be found here. For more information about this fellowship, visit the website at: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/public_services/homelessness_poverty/john_j_curtin_jr_fellowship1.html.
