Feerick Center Accepting Applications for New York Women’s Bar Association Foundation Fellowship

April 03, 2013

The Feerick Center for Social Justice has received a grant from the New York Women’s Bar Association to support two Fellows for the Academic Year beginning on August 26, 2013.

Two Fordham Law students will be selected for the fellowship based on financial need, academic merit, and commitment to public service and social justice issues. In addition to this criteria, Fellows must have excellent written and communications skills, be organized and detail-oriented, and demonstrate a strong commitment to social justice. Spanish language skills and previous experience in government or the not-for-profit sector is desirable, though not mandatory.

Fellows will spend nineteen hours per week working closely with the executive staff of the Feerick Center under the leadership of Executive Director Dora Galacatos. They will provide programmatic assistance to several Feerick Center initiatives, including the Domestic and Consumer Law Project, the CLARO Program, and the New York Unaccompanied Immigrant Children Project.

Both day and evening J.D. students who will have completed their first year of study by May 2013 are eligible to apply.

Applicants should send a cover letter, resume, and writing sample to Assistant Dean Robert J. Reilly at rrreilly@law.fordham.edu by April 5, 2013.
