Lambda Legal invites recent and prospective law graduates to request our sponsorship for mission-oriented fellowship proposals.  For years, we have hosted fellows funded by foundations, nonprofits, law firms, and law schools to participate in litigation and advocacy on a wide range of issues.

We are interested in project proposals that seek to advance the rights of LGBT people and people living with HIV.  We are particularly interested in projects addressing the rights of transgender and gender-nonconforming people; the rights of people living with HIV; the use of religious “exemptions” to discriminate against LGBT people; the rights of LGBT young people affected by the school-to-prison pipeline; the rights of low-income people, including in the workplace; the rights of people of color who are LGBT or living with HIV.

To apply for Lambda Legal to sponsor your fellowship project, email fellowships@lambdalegal.org, using the subject line “fellowship inquiry.”  Please include a cover letter, outline of your project proposal, information regarding the potential funder(s) (time span funded by the fellowship, application process, other requirements), resume, and writing sample.  Please specify which of our offices you would consider.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.  Early submissions are strongly encouraged, as these opportunities are limited.  No phone calls, please.

Lambda Legal is an equal opportunity employer.  People of color, transgender people and people with disabilities, including HIV, are encouraged to apply.
