Jacob Lipton will be hosting an info session tomorrow, Friday November 10th, at 12pm in HLS’s WCC 3007, about the Justice Catalyst’s Fellowship Program for graduating or post-clerkship law students. Learn more about the fellowship and our two-step application process – informal prospectus (optional but highly recommended) due November 15th, full application due January 10th – at http://justicecatalyst.org/get-started/

The Catalyst is looking for diverse, creative, self-starting fellows who will pursue year-long, project-based fellowships, with a possibility of renewal. The Catalyst prioritizes groundbreaking ideas, including early-stage projects that are boundary-pushing in the pursuit of systemic solutions to major injustices, whether at an established legal organization or an organization looking to hire its first lawyer.

The Catalyst’s philosophy is problem-centric. Successful projects start with a problem in the world and identify the best way to attack it. While the Catalyst’s core programmatic work is focused on litigation as a tool, fellowship project proposals need not be. Every problem has multiple possible solutions, and tailoring your project proposal to your understanding of the problem is key. While direct representation can be a major component of your project, the Catalyst is interested in projects that build towards broad scale change, including projects that fall outside traditional conceptions of legal work.
