Deadline Monday, March 17, to submit for Human Rights Fellowship with Professors Trucios-Haynes & Abrams

The LBF Greenebaum Human Rights Fellowship supports two law students working in the field of human rights law. The fellows will work starting spring semester 5-10 hours per week as research assistants for Professor Trucios-Haynes and Professor Abrams and be paid hourly. The LBF Greenebaum Human Rights Fellowship allows students to work collaboratively and strategically with local non-profits, law school faculty, and immigrant communities to identify human rights abuses impacting the local community and identify ways the legal community can better meet these needs. The fellows will take on many responsibilities including assisting local attorneys working on human rights cases, promoting public education and outreach regarding human rights, and working with the LBA Committee on Human Rights.

1Ls and 2Ls may apply. The deadline to apply is Monday, March 17, at 4:00 p.m. To learn more about this fellowship, download the application and the grant proposal for this project submitted to the Louisville Bar Foundation (LBF) located in the Documents Library under the Resources Tab on Symplicity. A copy of the application is also attached to this announcement. Please direct all questions to Assistant Dean Laurel Hajek in room 182 or at laurel.hajek@louisville.edu.
