Sponsor a Fellowship or Internship:
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Program places minority attorneys and law students in legal aid offices throughout Pennsylvania in some of the most underserved areas of the state. There are two components to the program.
The Summer Internship Program provides summer internships to minority students at Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network programs across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The Fellowship Program places law school graduates, and attorneys who are new to practice, as full-time staff attorneys in a local or specialty legal aid office for a two-year fellowship. These fellowships are supported by PLAN and our contributing sponsors, in partnership with the regional or specialty program hosting the fellow.
These programs have expanded and flourished thanks to the generous contributions of our program sponsors.
