The Government Law Center Fellowship program is a unique special curriculum and mentoring program that prepares students for distinguished careers in public service. The program serves three main goals.
- First, it helps students develop an excellent foundation of knowledge and skills for public-service practice.
- Second, it creates a sense of community for students interested in public service.
- And, third, it builds strong connections to attorneys in public-service practice.
The Fellowship is different in each of the three years of law school. First-year Fellows are given extracurricular opportunities to explore whether public service is right for them. Second-year Fellows take specific courses that will help prepare them for public service. And third-year Fellows undertake an experiential capstone project, either at the GLC or at an external placement, that helps prepare them directly for practice.
