Douglas T. Kendall Fellowship Program

The Douglas T. Kendall Fellowship is a one-year fellowship for recent law school graduates to join CAC’s litigation team and participate in on all aspects of the litigation team’s work.  CAC’s litigation team does significant amicus work in the Supreme Court and lower federal courts, as well as some direct litigation work.  CAC has recently filed amicus briefs at the Supreme Court on topics ranging from congressional oversight and the constitutionality of the CFPB, to qualified immunity and reproductive rights.  CAC’s recent and ongoing direct litigation work includes a historic lawsuit on behalf of over 200 members of Congress against President Donald Trump for violating the Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause, a defamation lawsuit against Alex Jones and others on behalf of Brennan Gilmore—witness to the murder of Heather Heyer during the alt-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and lawsuits challenging immigration policies adopted by high-level DHS officials who are serving unlawfully.

Please send a cover letter, resume, law school transcripts, and writing sample to Char Clarke at CAC will collect applications beginning September 15, 2020, for the Fellowship beginning September 2021.
