TheCenter for Public Interest Lawfunds 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.
Each year’s LL.M. cohort typically includes several Israeli students who have earned LL.B. degrees from schools such as Tel-Aviv University, Bar Ilan University, Haifa University, Hebrew University, and the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya. Some of these students have served as law clerks on the Israeli Supreme Court.
