Summer Law Fellowship

The District Attorneys talking to youth

The Summer Law Fellowship provides first- and second-year law students the opportunity to gain experience in trial and appellate litigation in the public sector. The ten-week program begins at the end of May and allows law students to work closely with Assistant District Attorneys. Depending upon assignment, summer fellows help prepare cases for grand jury presentations, hearings, and trials. Fellows also research and write appellate and trial briefs, and are assigned to work on complex, long-term investigations. In most cases, summer fellows have an opportunity to second-seat an Assistant District Attorney on trial.
