The Center for Public Interest Law funds one public interest summer fellowship in Israel. The fellowship funds an internship on a wide variety of public interest legal issues, including civil and human rights, poverty, women’s rights, children’s rights, immigration, the environment, criminal justice, and others. Because the goal of the fellowship is to give students who come from different backgrounds the opportunity to gain a broader understanding of the state of Israel and its citizens, preference will be given to students with no prior experience in the region. Hebrew language skills are not required.
The current LL.M. class consists of ten Israeli students who earned their LL.B. degrees from Tel-Aviv University (three students), Bar Ilan University (three students), Haifa University (two students), Hebrew University (one student), and the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (one student). Six of these students served as law clerks on the Israeli Supreme Court.
