Fellowships

The Stimson Fellowship allows incoming associates the opportunity to spend a year at a public service organization. Recipients of these fellowships—named for firm founding father Henry Stimson—advocate for the homeless and the developmentally disabled, provide information on workplace rights to immigrants, and coordinate youth employment law projects.

Equal Justice Works fellowships help recent law school graduates launch careers in public interest law. Since 2000, the Pillsbury Foundation has underwritten more than a dozen of these two-year fellowships, with donations totaling more than $1 million. Over 80% of our fellows have continued their legal careers in public interest law.

The Mid-Level Fellowship is awarded to a third- or fourth-year associate. The fellow is able to devote 50 percent of her or his billable hours on high-impact pro bono work, including advocating for indigent clients or civil rights.
