Postgraduate fellowships are one-year or two-year fully funded developmental public interest positions working in or with non-profit or governmental organizations. They can be project-based in which the fellow devises and executes a public interest project with a designated host organization, consist of staff attorney work, require clinical teaching responsibilities, and more. The positions tend to offer salaries and benefits comparable to traditional full-time, long-term public interest staff attorney positions.
