Legal Aid Summer Fellowship Program

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 a summer fellowship in 2018. 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 Legal Aid Summer Fellowship Program will run for a period of 11 weeks and is a full-time position for the summer. Monetary stipends for students who have finished their first year of law school (rising 2Ls) will be $6,500 and stipends for students who have finished their 2nd year of law school (rising 3Ls) will be $8,250.|
