Students interested in public service careers should consider summer and post-graduate fellowships available through Suffolk Law and from external funding sources.
Public service fellowships are available for both summer and post-graduate work, and are often connected to specific practice areas. Generally, post-graduate public interest fellowships award a stipend for a period of one to two years to recent law school graduates working in public interest programs. These awards offer a unique and valuable entry into public interest law.
The following fellowships and scholarships are available through Suffolk Law:
- Thomas J. Drinan Memorial Fellowship
- Paul R. McLaughlin Memorial Fellowship
- Consumer Law Public Service Fellowship
- Foley Hoag Centennial Fellowship
- Suffolk Public Interest Law Group Fellowship
- SPILG International Fellowships
- John E. Fenton, Jr. Public Service Awards
Last summer, nearly $200,000 of financial support was provided to Suffolk Law students working in public service (not including the significant contribution to the SPILG domestic fellowships from the federal work-study program).
