The Justice Leila Seth Fellowship is a remunerated, 18-month programme, which nurtures a cohort of exceptional lawyers who understand what it takes to create positive change in our society. Selected Fellows work directly on litigation, research and advocacy on core social justice issues related to child protection and juvenile justice. They are mentored by iProbono and our community of dedicated advocates.
Justice Leila Seth Fellows work closely with iProbono’s child rights team, consisting of both lawyers and social workers and have the opportunity to support our casework. They also identify and work on specific advocacy projects. Secondments with panel lawyers and partner organisations allow them to develop their legal skills and engage closely with grassroots issues.
The foundation of the Fellowship rests on the vision and strategy designed and implemented by iProbono, which includes:
Strengthening the impact of civil society
Advancing justice for all by representing people in need
Advocating for policies that promote social equity and end discrimination
