Program in Law and Public Service
Applicants should submit a resume, undergraduate transcript, one letter of recommendation and a personal statement, not to exceed 500 words, describing their commitment to public service and their future plans. Second-year law students should also submit their law school transcripts. Unofficial copies of transcripts, whether undergraduate or law school, will be accepted. The letter of recommendation can be one used for your law school application, but a letter that speaks specifically to your dedication to public service will be especially welcome and valuable. Letters may be attached to your application. However, if your recommender prefers, the letter may be submitted directly to the director or her assistant.
Selections will be based on past achievement, dedication to public service, and promise of future success. The program is designed for students who are committed to pursuing public service careers, and selections will be made accordingly. Applicants will be notified by the end of November. Applicants should sign up for spring courses in the normal process; selected fellows will automatically be added to the Law and Public Service course and, if necessary, will be permitted to drop one of the spring courses previously selected.
