We are pleased to announce a new academic program for students interested in the field of child advocacy. The Child Advocacy Fellows Program is an intensive and immersive educational program for second- and third-year Harvard Law School students wishing to gain deep expertise on issues affecting children and youth, with a social justice and anti-racist focus. The goal of the Program is to prepare law students for careers as leaders and change-makers in system transformation efforts on behalf of young people. We invite you to review the attached document explaining more about the program and its requirements. The application period is now open!
We encourage you to consider applying, even if you are not completely sure of your academic plans in the coming year or if you are not certain that you qualify. We are interested in considering applicants who have a variety of backgrounds or coursework experiences that meet the spirit of the Program.
Should you wish to apply, please complete this brief application by August 8, 2022. We hope to make decisions about the first 2L and 3L cohorts shortly thereafter.
