Public Interest Law Fellowships

Some Seton Hall students come to law school with the goal of a public interest career. The Public Interest Law Fellowship program provides the financial support our students need to dedicate themselves to work with a wide variety of organizations devoted to serving the legal needs of the poor and underrepresented. In recent years, Seton Hall students have received funding to spend summers with a variety of organizations, including:

  1. Urban Justice Center, Mental Health Project
  2. Texas Rural Legal Aid
  3. Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
  4. Legal Aid Society of New York
  5. The Georgia Resource Center
  6. NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund
  7. Covenant House of New Jersey, Youth Advocacy Center
  8. International Human Rights Institute
  9. Greater Boston Legal Services
  10. Brooklyn Legal Aid Society, Juvenile Rights Division

The Fellowship's support allows Seton Hall students to work for social justice in the summer or during the school year. They gain experience crucial to their public interest employment after law school, and learn about public interest law from within some of the nation's best public service organizations.
