The University of Michigan Law School has a long tradition of developing lawyers who work in service of the public, whether they devote their careers to public service or serve the public good in other ways. To further the Michigan tradition of public service, Michigan Law created the Dean's Public Service Fellows Program.
The Program recognizes up to ten second-year UMLS students who have a demonstrated commitment to public service and who intend to seek public service legal employment during the summer after their second year of school (or a later summer for joint degree students) as preparation for pursuing a public service law career after graduation. In recognition of their selection, Fellows receive a $7000 cash award. Receipt of the award is contingent upon the fulfillment of the obligations listed below.
In order to be considered for the Dean's Public Service Fellowship, you will need to submit your application on Symplicity by October 3, 2016. Your application must include a copy of your resume and an essay answering the following question (in 750 words or less): Please explain what type of work you hope to do this summer and how it will further your career goals.
Applicants do not have to have a position secured before applying for the Fellowship.
The Dean appoints a committee of faculty and administrators to select the fellows based on a demonstrated commitment to public service and the Michigan Law Public Interest Community.
