Child Welfare & Juvenile Justice Advocacy Fellowship

The Youth Law Center (YLC) is seeking third-year law students or judicial clerks who are interested in working on child welfare and juvenile justice advocacy issues and who will be applying for fellowships offered by the Skadden Fellowship Foundation, Equal Justice Works Foundation or other sponsored fellowships.  Although our staff will work closely with candidate(s) to develop a strong proposal that will integrate well with our work, YLC seeks candidates who are self-starters with a vision of a fellowship project that fits with our mission.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

If you are interested, please submit a cover letter, resume, list of three personal references and a writing sample. Youth Law Center is an equal opportunity employer. Your application package may be submitted via the following link:
