The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Immigrant Justice Project, based in Atlanta, Georgia, seeks to sponsor applicants for postgraduate legal fellowships to start in September 2015.
Applicants should be law students graduating in the spring of 2015 (rising third year students) or current law clerks. The Immigrant Justice Project (IJP) protects the employment and civil rights of migrant farmworkers and other low-wage immigrant workers and brings high impact cases in nine states in the Southeast. We are seeking applicants for the Skadden Fellowship, Equal Justice Works Fellowship, Liman Fellowship, or other public interest fellowships.
Interested candidates should send application materials (resume, cover letter, law school transcript, list of references, and brief fellowship proposal description) by July 15, 2014. IJP will consider any proposals relevant to our mission and is especially interested in proposals addressing state and local law enforcement practices that violate immigrant communities’ civil rights, abuses occurring during the recruitment and/or employment of temporary foreign guest workers, or the health and safety of workers in poultry processing plants. Applicants should have a demonstrated commitment to public interest law, strong writing, research, and analytical skills, and interest in federal court litigation. Applicants who speak Spanish proficiently are especially encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should submit a resume, cover letter, law school transcript, list of references, and brief fellowship proposal description by July 15, 2014 to:
