Liman Summer Fellowships gives students the chance to work at public interest organizations related to law. These organizations do a variety of work for the public good. Some provide lawyers for people who cannot afford them. Many advocate on behalf of underserved communities. Others shape public policy.
As a Summer Fellow, you will take part in the Liman Colloquium, held every spring at Yale Law School. You will also join a nationwide network of public interest advocates and scholars.
