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.

Note: For information about the LAFLA Equity & Inclusion Fellowship (LEIF) Program, visit our Law Students page.

Please email a letter describing potential projects and the fellowship programs for which you plan to apply, along with a resume, unofficial transcript, and writing sample to Pro Bono Manager Tiffany Tsao

For school-based fellowship programs, please also include in your application the description of the fellowship offered by your law school (including compensation, duration, etc.).

All applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
