Law Students for Reproductive Justice Fellowship

In 2010, Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) successfully launched the Reproductive Justice Fellowship Program (RJFP), designed to provide recent law school graduates with entry points into careers in reproductive justice advocacy and to build the legal and policy capacity of non-profit organizations in the field.

To participate in the Reproductive Justice Fellowship Program, prospective fellows and placement organizations will apply for the opportunities and be chosen through rigorous review by a selection committee each year. Applications for the 2011-12 fellowship year are due by 5:00 pm PST on Monday, November 1, 2010.

Again this year, six (6) RJ Fellows will be selected and placed at six (6) host organizations with offices in Washington D.C., capitalizing on their proximity to legal, legislative, and policy-making bodies. The 2011-12 fellowship class will begin their yearlong positions in August 2011. In addition to their work at the host organizations, the RJ Fellows will participate in a year-long program that includes mentoring, professional development, training, and networking opportunities.

LSRJ will provide each RJ Fellow with an annual stipend of $50,000, and placement organizations will provide benefits.
