Below follows a fellowship opportunity from an outstanding organization that is looking to fund young animal lawyers. If you fit the profile, I urge you to apply without delay.
From the email:
The Equal Justice Works Fellowships Program provides financial and other forms of support to lawyers working on innovative legal projects throughout the U.S. The two-year Fellowships offer salary (up to $41,000 annually) and generous loan repayment assistance; a national training and leadership development program; and other forms of support during the term of the Fellowship.
Equal Justice Works recruits “sponsors,” including law firms, corporations, bar associations, foundations and individuals, to fund our fellowships. This year, we have sponsor interest in funding a fellow working in the area of animal law. You have been identified to us as an expert in this area who might help spread the word to potential fellowship candidates. The sponsor is looking for applicants anywhere in the US working on animal law projects.
