Boston University School of Law Post-Graduate Public Service Fellowship Program
Launched in 2010, BU Law’s Public Service Fellowships continue BU Law’s long tradition of supporting our students’ pursuit of careers in public service.
Boston University School of Law is pleased to announce that it will award full-time post-graduate fellowships to a select group of its 2023 JD graduates to enable them to provide legal assistance to non- profit organizations and state and local government agencies for one year. The fellowships will be awarded to graduating third year students who have obtained a commitment from a host organization to sponsor them for that period, and whose applications demonstrate the potential for significant and substantive achievement of the fellowship goals during the fellowship year.
The Boston University School of Law Citrix Systems Racial and Social Justice Fellowship was established in 2020 through a dedicated gift to the Law School by Citrix Systems, Inc. to help a graduating third-year J.D. student secure a year-long placement at a nonprofit organization advocating for voting rights, criminal justice reform, or other social justice initiatives.
BU Law’s Public Service Fellowships are designed to launch committed graduates’ careers in public service, while providing additional resources to non-profit organizations and state and local government agencies that would not otherwise be able to financially support a new attorney.
BU Law will also award one N. Neal Pike Disability Rights Fellowship to a 2023 graduate. The N. Neal Pike Disability Rights Fellowship will support a year-long placement in the field of disability rights law at a non-profit organization or state and local government agency.
