Fellowship Opportunities

LAFLA invites recent law school graduates interested in pursuing a public interest legal career to submit fellowship applications. In past years, LAFLA has hosted fellows from various programs, including Skadden, Equal Justice Works and school-based fellowships.

School-Based Fellowships

LAFLA welcomes proposals from law students who are interested in applying for fellowships. We will consider any proposal from well-qualified applicants in any of our practice areas. We look favorably on proposals with a strong pro bono component. Please include in your application the description of the fellowship offered by your law school (including compensation, duration, etc.).

Other Fellow Projects

LAFLA regularly sponsors applicants seeking Skadden or Equal Justice Works Fellowships. If you are interested in developing a proposal with LAFLA to pursue these fellowships, you should begin developing your application early, as applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Fellowship Application Procedure

Please send or e-mail a letter describing potential projects and the fellowships for which you plan to apply, along with a resume, unofficial transcript, and writing sample to Pro Bono Director Phong Wong.

Bilingual Spanish, Korean, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Japanese and Khmer speakers are strongly encouraged to apply.

Office Locations

We also have three Domestic Violence Clinics, located at the Superior Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Courthouse and the Long Beach Courthouse.

LAFLA operates four Self-Help Legal Access Centers located in the Inglewood, Long Beach, Santa Monica and Torrance courthouses.
