Yale Law School Liman Fellowship Application Process


Deadline for 2018-2019 Liman Fellowship Applications: Monday, January 22, 2018

All graduates of Yale Law School are eligible to apply, as are third-year students.

Applications are considered by the Liman Fellowship Selection Committee, chaired by Judith Resnik, the Arthur Liman Professor of Law. In reviewing each application, the Committee considers several factors, including experience in using law to further the public interest (whether in public service organizations; government service; education, including law school clinics; or the private sector); competence in the areas covered by the proposed Fellowship project; leadership capabilities; academic accomplishments; references; and a demonstrated commitment to public service. In addition, the Committee evaluates the need for the proposed Fellowship project, its potential impact, and the capacity of both the applicant and the sponsoring organization, if any, to implement it.

The application process is currently being revised. For more information, please contact Liman Director Anna VanCleave
