MALDEF and Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP Fellowship

The law firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP has joined with MALDEF to create a unique program that effectively bridges the worlds of private law firm litigation and public service law.

The MALDEF/Fried Frank Fellowship gives an entry-level lawyer the opportunity to spend two years as a Fried Frank litigator and then two years as a staff attorney with MALDEF. At the end of their four-year commitment, the Fellows may interview to return to the firm or, in some cases, they may join the permanent staff of MALDEF.

The ideal candidate for a MALDEF/Fried Frank Fellowship is a third-year law student or recent graduate currently in a judicial clerkship. Candidates for the Fellowship should have a genuine interest in both corporate and civil rights litigation. Spanish language skills are also highly desirable.
