Awards and Fellowships
Stanford Law School offers several postgraduate public interest fellowships for recent Stanford Law School JD graduates. These fellowships help our JD alumni launch their public interest careers through a paid one-year fellowship in a law-related endeavor designed to further the public interest.
The Levin Center administers two of the programs that offer a total of six positions. We provide each Fellow with a $45,000 salary and the same fringe benefits to which an employee of the host organization would be entitled. SLS' Loan Repayment Assistance Program will provide additional funds to meet educational loan repayment obligations during the fellowship year.
Only SLS JD alumni are eligible to apply for these two programs:
- Stanford Law School Fellowships (five positions)
- Stanford Law School Criminal Defense Fellowship (one position)
Additional postgraduate fellowships are available from the Stanford Law School Human Rights Center. Details can be found on their website.
