Each year, Columbia public interest students are recipients of highly selective fellowships. They are among the few who are selected for positions in the Department of Justice Honors Program, prestigious clerkships, and other highly competitive public interest jobs throughout the United States and the world. SJI assists students and graduates who are interested in these opportunities.
In addition, many alumni and other generous donors have demonstrated that public interest law is at the core of the Law School’s values by creating fellowships that allow Columbia graduates to pursue public interest careers. Fellowships allow graduates and current students to do public interest work in the United States or abroad.
