Postgraduate fellowships are grants that fund law graduates to work at public interest organizations or government agencies. They are typically short-term positions that allow new lawyers to gain exposure and experience in their chosen field. Postgraduate fellowships are collectively the largest source of entry-level public interest law jobs and can put graduates in a great position to find subsequent public interest work (often at the same organization/agency).
