Bridging The Justice Gap | Closing The Jobs Gap
A national social enterprise fellowship program for young attorneys
The official Civic Legal Corps fellowship application is now available for third-year law students and young attorneys dedicated to closing the justice gap!
Due to high interest, our application deadline has been extended until March 15, 2014. Click here to learn more and apply.
Civic Legal Corps has been selected as a semi-finalist for the prestigious Echoing Green Global Fellowship! We're equally honored to have received a two-year grant from Peter and Jennifer Buffett's NoVo Foundation, generous financial support from the Terry and Suzan Kramer Family Foundation and Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld LLP, as well as contributions from numerous individual donors. We look forward to partnering with these innovative organizations and individuals to make justice accessible for low and moderate income Americans!
Additionally, we greatly appreciate the interest we've received in our work from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (Ret.) and other leaders in the law, business, and social entrepreneurship.
