Juvenile Justice Clinic Graduate Teaching Fellowships
The Juvenile Justice Clinic offers a graduate two-year fellowship each year. The fellow is selected through the E. Barrett Prettyman/Stuart Stiller Fellowship Program at Georgetown. The goal of the fellowship is to provide quality representation to adults and adolescents accused of crimes and to provide to recent law school graduates a comprehensive education concerning trial advocacy, litigation and clinical teaching.
Fellows spend two years in the program, after which they are awarded a Masters Degree in Advocacy. During the first year, fellows try cases and develop their skills as clinical teachers. In the second year, they continue to represent clients and supervise third year law students in the Juvenile Justice Clinic.
Applying for a Fellowship at Our Clinic
For the past several years we have received well over 100 applications for the three fellowships. We do the best we can to give every application individual attention. We will rarely reject an applicant based solely on his or her transcript. Instead, we give weight to all of the varied experiences and talents which indicate potential as a criminal trial lawyer and clinical supervisor/teacher.
Unfortunately, these talents and experiences will not always be reflected in application materials unless the applicant makes a special effort to see that they are. Please provide us with as full a picture of yourself as you can and encourage your references to be as detailed as possible.
Applications for The E. Barrett Prettyman and Stuart Stiller Fellowship Program will be accepted from September 1, 2013 through November 1, 2013. Applications will not be accepted after the deadline of November 1, 2013. We will try to notify applicants selected for interviews by the end of November. Please make sure to include a telephone number where we can reach you in December. We interview in our office during the month of December, and we make final selections in February and March.
