FELLOWSHIPS AND EXTERNSHIPS

In collaboration with some of the country's leading advocacy organizations, we have created unique programs that effectively bridge the worlds of private law firm litigation and public service law and offer our attorneys pro bono fellowship and externship opportunities.

  • NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF) 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 LDF, which fights for equality and empowerment for African-Americans and other disenfranchised groups. At the end of their four-year commitment, our successful Fellows are encouraged to interview to return to Fried Frank and, in some cases, they may continue on the staff of LDF. (Ideal for a third-year law student or recent graduate currently in a judicial clerkship; must apply directly through the Fried Frank Fellowship Program)
  • Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) 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, the nation's leading Latino litigation, advocacy and educational outreach organization. At the end of their four-year commitment, our successful Fellows are encouraged to interview to return to Fried Frank and, in some cases, they may continue on the staff of MALDEF. (Ideal for a third-year law student or recent graduate currently in a judicial clerkship; must apply directly through the Fried Frank Fellowship Program)
  • Her Justice – Current associates may apply for a fellowship with a renowned New York City-based non-profit organization (formerly known as inMotion) that provides low-income, under-served, and battered women with free, quality legal services. Her Justice has recruited over 2,000 volunteer attorneys from New York's premier law firms, leading corporate law programs and prominent solo law practices, to advise its clients primarily in the areas of matrimonial, family and immigration law. (Ideal for midlevel associates in the litigation department)
  • New York Legal Aid Society – The Pro Bono Externship Program was created to assist the Society in fulfilling its commitment to provide pro bono legal services to low-income businesses and micro-entrepreneurs through the Community Development Project (CDP). Each year, three associates are given the opportunity to spend four months working full-time in the CDP offices. (Ideal for midlevel associates in the benefits, corporate, intellectual property and technology, real estate and tax departments)
