Public Rights Project Fellowship


Public Rights Project helps talented attorneys find pathways into rewarding public service careers. We place skilled, public interest-minded fellows into state or local government law offices -- including City Attorneys, District Attorneys, or Attorneys General -- for two years. Fellows have the opportunity to work on a range of civil rights, economic justice, and environmental justice issues that directly impact vulnerable populations locally and across the country. Host offices benefit from an infusion of talent and energy to fight for the rights of their communities.

Fellows work with government colleagues on affirmative litigation, coalition building and community engagement, policy research, and other enforcement projects developed with their placement offices. They help develop new cases and generate new ideas for their offices to expand public rights enforcement.
