SKADDEN FELLOWSHIP - Ithaca
SKADDEN FELLOWSHIP - Ithaca, New York
Skadden Fellowship application deadline: September 16, 2019
LawNY is seeking to host an applicant for a two-year Skadden Fellowship beginning in August or September 2020. The LawNY Ithaca office is interested in hosting a Fellow who will explore and/or facilitate a medical-legal partnership with area medical providers, focusing on opioid-related issues facing the communities in Tompkins and Tioga Counties. The Fellow should consider how to utilize and/or implement the involvement of civil legal services to address these issues. Staff members will work together across areas of specialization to bring a holistic approach to addressing law-related issues affecting our clients and communities.
The Skadden Foundation will award two-year fellowships for 2020 law school graduates, outgoing judicial law clerks, and LL.M. candidates who want to work in the public interest. Applicants will develop and submit the application with LawNY as the host organization. https://www.skaddenfellowships.org/application
