Gallogly Family Foundation Public Interest Law Fellowship

The Gallogly Family Foundation created the Public Interest Law Fellowship to provide opportunities for new lawyers to gain experience in public interest work and to improve access to quality legal services. This is a one-year fellowship with the option to renew for a second year.

Applicants must secure a sponsoring non-profit host organization and, together with the organization, submit a proposal for a fellowship project. The project can be part of the organization’s ongoing programs or a new project developed with the organization. Projects must provide direct civil legal services to low-income individuals and/or those deprived of their civil or human rights.

The fellowship will include a one-year salary of $50,000.00 and up to $5,000.00 to help the host organization cover the cost of medical benefits for the fellow. The host organization must cover the cost of medical benefits that exceed $5,000.00. Because the fellow will be an employee of the host organization, the Foundation will give the fellowship award directly to the host organization for the fellow’s benefit.

The fellowship is open to 2020 graduates of Texas Law as well as recent graduates of who will complete a judicial clerkship by fall 2020. Fellowship offers are contingent on the selected candidates’ passage of the July 2020 bar exam. Fellowships will start in the fall of 2020 after fellows receive their passing bar exam results.
