The Student Bar Foundation
The Student Bar Foundation is the only student-led and student-run organization that provides fellowships for law students who pursue low-paying or unpaid law-related public interest work. The fellowships allow recipients to deliver legal services to the poor and indigent, provide law-related public education, and improve the judiciary, the legal profession, and citizens' access to the justice system.
Past fellowships have allowed students to work at the U.S. Attorney's Office, the National Center for the Prosecution of Child Abuse, the Department of Public Advocacy, Legal Aid, Kentucky Refugee Ministries, the Commonwealth Attorney's Office, the Kentucky Supreme Court, the Department of Justice, the National Juvenile Justice Network, the Center for Women and Families, and international service-learning programs in Rwanda and Belize.
These fellowships are supported entirely from the proceeds of the Annual Charity Auction and the generous donations of faculty, staff, and Louisville's legal and business communities. Many thanks to all who made this year's auction such a success! Details regarding the 2013 Charity Auction will be forthcoming.
