Justice Leila Seth Fellowship


The Justice Leila Seth Fellowship invites lawyers committed to social justice to be part of a community that works to preserve the rights and dignity of all people.

We believe that the Fellows, with varying levels of life experience, are going to be leaders of this movement. We are looking to develop a diverse cohort who seek to develop their legal skills, knowledge of social justice issues, and leadership potential through this 18-month Fellowship.

How to Apply

Through the three-stage process detailed below, we will select candidates with the highest potential for the program.
