The Justice Fellowship offers new attorneys committed to civil rights and criminal justice an unparalleled opportunity to work on trial and appellate litigation at the very beginning of their careers. Our fellows will participate in all aspects of our wrongful conviction, civil rights, and whistleblower practices. In doing so, they will be trained by experienced civil rights litigators and gain litigation experience unavailable in entry-level positions elsewhere.
Loevy & Loevy will select two Fellows to join the firm during the fall of 2016. Fellows are expected to commit to either a one- or two-year term. Compensation is $65,000 per year with full benefits.
Fellows will be responsible for participating in Loevy & Loevy’s civil trial teams, taking depositions of defendants and third-party witnesses, writing legal briefs for federal district courts and courts of appeals, and conducting investigations and witness interviews in support of pending cases.
Loevy & Loevy is in search of candidates with exemplary credentials to serve as Fellows. Preference will be given to applicants who have completed judicial clerkships or public-interest fellowships, and to those with a keen interest in trial practice, stellar academic and publication records, and clinical experience. A demonstrated commitment to public interest law, civil rights, and criminal justice is important.
