Education and Teaching Fellowships

Teaching fellowships are designed to offer graduates the ability to learn how to teach law in a clinical setting, or work on legal research projects.

EXAMPLES:

Georgetown Clinical Graduate Teaching Fellowships

  • Georgetown University Law Center's fellowships offer new and experienced attorneys alike the opportunity to combine study with practice in the fields of clinical legal education and public interest advocacy. Each fellowship is associated with one of the Law Center clinical programs, and varies considerably from the others in purpose, requirements, and duties.
  • Fellows typically enroll in a two-year program during which they are in residence at a specific Georgetown clinic. In at least one of their years in residence, fellows directly supervise J.D. students enrolled in the clinics, assist in teaching clinical seminars, and perform work on their own cases or other legal matters in representing their clinic's clients.
  • Fellowships usually begin in the late summer with an intensive orientation designed to introduce fellows to clinical teaching methods. The orientation is part of a year-long teacher training course entitled Elements of Clinical Pedagogy. Upon completing the requirements for graduation, a fellow is awarded the degree of Master of Laws (Advocacy).
