Community Development and Environmental Justice Fellowship (2017-2018)
In spring 2017 the Law School will fund the Community Development and Environmental Justice Fellowship as part of an innovative statewide community development project designed to improve the quality of life in low-income communities. The fellowship, funded by a Texas Access to Justice Foundation (TAJF) grant to the Law School, is a 12-month, postgraduate public interest fellowship, with a start date of mid-August 2017. The Law School’s TAJF grant is administered by the Justice Center.
The fellow will receive an annual salary of $45,000 and will be eligible for employee benefits from Texas Law. The fellow will work from a legal services organization in Austin, Dallas, or Houston under the supervision of the faculty of the Texas Law Environmental Clinic and the Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic.
