Yale Law School Congratulates 35 Public Interest Fellowship Recipients for 2010-2011

Yale Law School is proud to congratulate the 35 current students and recent graduates who have been named recipients of public interest fellowships for 2010-2011.

Twenty-five of the recipients will receive Yale Law School public interest post-graduate fellowships through such programs as the YLS Public Interest Fellowship, the Arthur Liman Public Interest Fellowship, the Robert L. Bernstein Fellowships in International Human Rights, the Heyman Federal Public Service Fellowship, the Robina Foundation Human Rights Fellowship, the San Francisco Affirmative Litigation Project Fellowship, the YLS Fellowship at the Permanent Court of Arbitration, and the YLS International Court of Justice Internship/Clerkship.

Another ten will pursue public interest work through fellowship programs funded by outside organizations, including the Skadden Foundation, the Soros Foundation, the University of Arizona Law School, the Georgetown University Law Center, the Equal Justice Initiative, Echoing Green, and the Supreme Court Assistance Project.

These fellowships, along with Yale’s generous and flexible post-graduate loan forgiveness program known as COAP (Career Options Assistance Program), help Yale Law graduates launch and maintain public interest careers in a host of settings and in a variety of capacities.

This year’s recipients will be working for such organizations as the Natural Resources Defense Council, the D. C. Legal Aid Society, the U.S. Justice and State Departments, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the International Court of Justice, and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice.
