Yale Law School Congratulates Public Interest Fellowship Recipients for 2012-2013
Yale Law School is proud to congratulate the 37 students and recent graduates who, as of March 2012, have been named recipients of public interest fellowships for 2012-2013.
Thirty of the recipients will receive Yale Law School public interest post-graduate fellowships through programs that include 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 Gruber Fellowship in Global Justice and Women’s Rights, the San Francisco Affirmative Litigation Project Fellowship, and the YLS International Court of Justice Internship/Clerkship. Seven will pursue public interest work through fellowship programs funded by outside organizations, including the Skadden Foundation, the Institute for Policy Integrity, and Equal Justice Works.
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 U.S. Department of the Treasury, Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project, International Criminal Tribunals, American Civil Liberties Union, Center for American Progress, California Solicitor General’s Office, International Justice Mission, and National Women’s Law Center.
