Description

The NAPABA Law Foundation Partners and In-House Counsel Community Law Fellowship Program was launched in 2004 to address the shortage of attorneys working on behalf of the Asian Pacific American populations. Recognizing that many obstacles prevent committed attorneys from practicing public interest law, including the shortage of entry-level jobs, the Community Law Fellowship provides an opportunity for a new attorney to gain substantive experience at a non-profit organization during the two-year fellowship period. The NAPABA Law Foundation Partners and In-House Counsel Community Law Fellowship Program seeks to develop the public interest law leaders of the future, whether they continue to work in the nonprofit arena or become pro bono advocates in the private bar.
