Wasserstein Public Interest Fellowship Program Applications Now Open

The Office of Public Interest Advising (OPIA) at Harvard Law School is pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2021-2022 Wasserstein Public Interest Fellows Program.  

Wasserstein Fellows are outstanding public interest lawyers who have demonstrated an aptitude for mentorship and spend three consecutive days advising individual Harvard Law students. Wasserstein Fellows also speak to students in group settings and assist OPIA staff in developing advising resources in their field of practice. 

Applicants are sought who have shown a long-standing commitment to public interest law and possess interpersonal qualities that will enable them to be effective career advisors. The goal of the program is to select a cohort of Fellows who reflect the diversity of HLS students and who work in areas of law that are of particular interest to current HLS students. Applications are especially welcome from BIPOC, first-gen, and those working on voting rights, human rights, and criminal justice reform.

Additional information about the program and details on how to apply are available at https://hls.harvard.edu/dept/opia/wasserstein-fellows-program/wasserstein-fellow-applicant-information/.  

 Applications are due by April 19, 2021.
