MJF Summer Fellowship Info Session
MJF-funded summer internship public interest placements
Date & Time:
12:30 PM - 1:20 PM
The Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF) Summer Fellowship Program provides funds for Minnesota public interest law offices to hire law students to work as summer fellows during Summer 2023. Students are expected to work full-time for 10 weeks over the summer for a modest wage.
Law students are hired by legal aid organizations, public defenders, and more to serve eligible clients, including many who, because of program overload and lack of case priority, otherwise could not be served. The law students learn about the legal needs of eligible clients, develop the skills required to address those needs, and gain the legal experience they will need to perform pro bono legal work after they leave law school.
