Loevy & Loevy is accepting applications for the 2019 Justice Fellowship.
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 Justice Fellows participate in all aspects of our wrongful conviction, civil rights, and whistleblower practices.
Loevy & Loevy will select one or two Justice Fellows to join the firm during the fall of 2019. Justice Fellows typically commit to a two-year term. Compensation is $75,000 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 briefs and pleadings 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 Justice 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 records, and clinical experience. A demonstrated commitment to public interest law, civil rights, or criminal justice is important.
To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, references, and a sample of your writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
