We actively welcome applicants from all practice areas. However, judges and attorneys practicing in an academic setting are not eligible for the program.

You may apply to be a 2-3 day Wasserstein Public Interest Fellow or Early Career Wasserstein Public Interest Fellow, or an OPIA/HRP Wasserstein Fellow-in-Residence. Early Career Wasserstein Fellows are attorneys who have been out of law school for three to six years. Alternatively, you may nominate someone else for the Fellowship. Learn about Wasserstein Fellow responsibilities. Application and nomination materials must be submitted by Friday, April 5, 2019. 

NOTE: If you wish to reactivate a prior Wasserstein Fellowship application, you need not submit a new complete application. Simply fill out any required fields on the online Wasserstein Fellow Application Form with any updates and indicate that you are reapplying with the year(s) of your prior application(s) as your personal statement document.

Applicants can expect to be notified of the final status of their application by the end of June.

Questions about the application or nomination process should be directed to the Bernard Koteen Office of Public Interest Advising at
