Columbia is proud to offer one of the most supportive Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAPs) of any law school. The Lowenstein Fellowship and the Dale and Max Berger Public Interest Law Fellowship (Berger Fellowship) provide enhanced loan repayment support to Columbia Law School students who show exceptional dedication and potential for contribution to public interest law, including government service.
Application forms and specific information about each of the Fellowships, including selection criteria and benefits, is provided on the Postgraduate Fellowships webpage. This is a brief overview.
The Lowenstein Fellowships are awarded to Columbia Law School graduates who show exceptional dedication and potential for contribution to public interest law, including government service.
The Berger Fellowships are awarded to Columbia Law School graduates who show exceptional dedication and potential for making a substantial contribution to public interest law, including government service, and whose career and first post-graduate job (other than a judicial clerkship) will be substantially devoted to using the law to fight racial, gender and/or other discrimination.
You may apply to either or both fellowships. All applications must be on the relevant Application Form and must be complete. If you are applying for more than one Fellowship, you must attach the requested materials (essays, resume, transcript and reference letters) to each Form. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Do not apply if you will be a judicial law clerk next year. You will have a chance to apply at the end of your clerkship.
Application Forms must be received by Social Justice Initiatives no later than Monday, June 25, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. Applications may not be submitted by fax or e-mail.
Questions should be directed to Brian Juergens of Social Justice Initiatives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
