Justice John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship

Emory Law is pleased to administer the Justice John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship Program. This program is generously funded by the Justice John Paul Stevens Foundation.

Stevens Fellowships provide financial assistance to students who will spend their summer volunteering at a public interest organization. First- and second-year students who have secured a full-time (40 hours/wk for 10 weeks) volunteer summer law position with a public interest organization may qualify.

Qualifying employer organizations include legal services agencies and government offices (judicial externships do not qualify). Private sector "public interest" law firms will also be considered as qualifying employers as long as the position is unpaid and the firm provides a letter or other descriptive material that supports their "public interest" status.
All applicants submit a letter from their employer confirming their summer position. The essay portion of the application should describe the applicant's commitment to public interest law.
