Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law Student Fellowship Program

Posted on


The Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law engages in research, public education, advocacy, and litigation to advance its mission of shaping how people understand, diagnose, and address issues of race and inequality. We are seeking applications from 1L and 2L students for our summer Student Fellowship Program, to take place during the summer of 2018.


Student Fellows will conduct research into topics of race and inequality for use in advocacy, litigation, and public education under the guidance and supervision of Center leadership; assist with the planning and execution of the Center’s events on race and inequality; and contribute to the Center’s work on race and inequality. Student Fellows will be expected to apply for PILC funding to secure financial support for the duration of the summer fellowship. Student Fellows may have the opportunity to meet practitioners, advocates, and scholars engaged in work at the intersection of racial justice and inequality. The expected time commitment is an average of 40 hours per week over 10 weeks.  Student Fellows will work with the Center’s Faculty Director, Professor Anthony Thompson; and the Center’s Executive Director, Vincent Southerland.


If you are interested, please submit the following materials in a single PDF to the Center’s Executive Director, Vincent Southerland, at
