Legal Aid Summer Fellowship Program

2018 Summer Fellows

The Florida Bar Foundation is dedicated to promoting civil legal service in burgeoning members of the legal profession. In pursuit of this goal, the Florida Bar Foundation seeks non-profit legal services organizations in Florida to host law students for summer fellowships. The purpose of this fellowship is twofold: 1. to foster a desire within each participating student to continue to assist low income families with civil legal needs after they graduate, whether it be through employment at a legal services organization or through pro bono work; and 2. for the organization to utilize the summer fellow in support of their goal to provide civil legal assistance to clients.

The 2018 Legal Aid Summer Fellowship Program ran for a period of 11 weeks. Students worked full-time. Monetary stipends for students who have finished their first year of law school (rising 2Ls) was $6,500 and stipends for students who have finished their 2nd year of law school (rising 3Ls) was $8,250.
