 ---ENVIRONMENTAL LAW---

ABA Diversity Environmental Law Fellowship

The ABA Diversity Fellowship in Environmental Law is designed to encourage disadvantaged or traditionally underrepresented law students to study and pursue careers in environmental law. The Section's work on environmental justice is coordinated with not-for-profit organizations representing traditionally underserved groups, other not-for-profit environmental organizations, and local, state and federal governmental organizations which provide placements for our summer Fellowship recipients.
Guidelines: Fellowship recipients work on legal matters for a government agency or public interest organization in the fields of environmental, energy or resources law (for a time span of 8-10 weeks). Recipients are able to select the state they wish to intern in, but will not the organization in which they are placed.
 

Recipients receive a $5,000 ($6,000 for New York Fellows) stipend. The stipend does not cover travel expenses or include a housing allowance; these expenses are paid by the Fellowship recipient.
 

This fellowship program is open to first and second year law students or third year night students from underrepresented or underserved groups, including for example, minority or low-income populations. **Exceptions can be made, but preference will generally be given to those attending school, those who have permanent residency, or those who have a strong interest in the state that they are applying to. Students must complete and submit a Fellowship application to be considered.

BAY AREA MINORITY LAW STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP

The Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarship Program was established to reaffirm a commitment to diversity in legal education and the legal profession, particularly in Northern California.

The program was created ten years ago in response to the passage of SP-1, the University of California Regent's resolution to end affirmative action and race-based admissions at UC Schools. Since the program’s inception, over 50 scholarships have been awarded. The vast majority of scholarships awarded were $10,000 yearly. Awards are given based on financial need, commitment to and involvement in public service, barriers faced in life, and scholastics.  

Past recipients of these scholarships have become associates with some of the top law firms in the Bay Area, including Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein LLP, Keker & Van Nest, LLP, Bingham McCutchen and Morrison & Foerster.
