Bristow Fellowship

The U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Solicitor General is now accepting applications for the Bristow Fellowship. The Fellowship consists of a 12 to 14 month appointment beginning in August or September of 2011.

Bristow Fellows work closely with the other lawyers in the Office of the Solicitor General. They help draft briefs in the opposition to petitions for certiorari filed in the Supreme Court of the United States and prepare recommendations to the Solicitor General regarding the Authorization of government appeals in the lower courts. The fellows also assist in the preparation of petitions and briefs in Supreme Court cases, work on special projects, and help the Solicitor General and other lawyers in the office prepare for oral argument before the Supreme Court.

Details and application instructions can be found on Symplicity. Deadline is September 1, 2010.
