Skadden Fellowship Information Session
Kathleen Rubenstein, Associate Director of the Skadden Foundation, will discuss the Skadden Fellowship for students who are interested in applying for this prestigious postgraduate public interest fellowship. Students are encouraged to bring questions about the Fellowship with them to the program.
The Skadden Fellowship Foundation launched in 1988 and has since become one of the largest funders of public interest fellowships in the United States. The program provides two-year Fellowships to talented young lawyers to pursue the practice of public interest law on a full-time basis. The Skadden Fellowship’s guiding principle is to improve legal services for the poor and encourage economic independence. To date, the Foundation has funded over 800 fellowships. Ninety percent of former Fellows remain in public service, and almost all of them continue working on the same issues they addressed in their original Fellowship projects.
Lunch will be served. RSVP by Wednesday, February 20, on Symplicity by selecting the “Events” tab.
