The public interest fellowship is a two-year, paid position with an annual salary of $60,000 and generous benefits. The Fellow will work in the Center’s offices in Washington, D.C., with leaders in the disability rights field, helping to develop and litigate groundbreaking cases and advocate for public policy reforms to advance the rights of adults and children with mental disabilities. In addition to working in federal and state trial courts, the Fellow may have opportunities to work on Supreme Court and other appellate cases, to lobby Members of Congress and federal agencies, and to support state-based advocacy organizations.
