We invite law students and recent law school graduates interested in a public interest legal career to partner with Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles to pursue both external and school-based fellowships.

LAFLA has a long tradition of successfully hosting fellows sponsored by various programs, including Skadden, Equal Justice Works, and individual schools.

We will consider proposals from well-qualified applicants in any of our practice areas and look favorably on proposals with a strong pro bono component.
