Baron & Budd Public Interest Summer Fellowships

Marcus Martinez, ’19, at the Chicago Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, funded though a Baron & Budd Public Interest Summer Fellowship

The Baron & Budd Public Interest Summer Fellowships Program provides funding for up to 5 students. In the summer of 2018, the program will provide each fellow with a $4,500 stipend to work for at least 10 weeks (and a minimum of 400 hours) under the supervision of an attorney at a qualified sponsoring organization.

A sponsoring organization must be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit providing legal services and/or advocacy to underrepresented individuals or communities. Government agencies, labor unions, and legislative offices do not qualify as a sponsoring organization.  A public defender office does not qualify unless it is organized as a 501(c)(3).

The fellowships are supported by generous funding from Baron & Budd, PC.
