Apply for the Birnbaum Women’s Leadership Network’s (BWLN) Women’s Leadership Fellows Program (WLFP)! The application for the WLFP will close in just under one week on Sunday, October 2, at 11:59 p.m. EDT. The cohort will be selected on or before Friday, November 4. Due to the nature of the program, the WLFP is only open to 1L JD students at NYU Law.
The WLFP is a co-curricular leadership development opportunity for 10-12 students in which participants will build key leadership skills. Students apply and are selected as Fellows in the fall of their 1L year and participate in programming throughout their time at NYU Law. The WLFP begins with the Sara Moss Women’s Leadership Training Program, a rigorous week-long leadership development program for 1L Fellows that combines self-assessment, instruction, experiential learning, team-building, coaching, and mentoring. Each Fellow will receive a stipend of $2,500 in their 1L year. Due to the three-year nature of this program, it is only open to 1L JD students. The 2023 Sara Moss Women’s Leadership Training is scheduled to take place January 9-13, 2023, before classes resume for the Spring semester.
In the Women’s Leadership Fellows Program (WLFP), participants will build key leadership skills. Fellows will work closely together as a cohort, as well as independently, as participants develop their own individual, authentic leadership styles. Students apply and are selected as Fellows in the fall of their 1L year and participate in programming throughout their time at NYU Law. We seek to build a diverse, inclusive cohort, and we welcome applications from any first-year JD student at NYU Law seeking woman-focused leadership training. Students of all gender identities and expressions (including but not limited to cisgender, transgender, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and/or genderqueer students) are encouraged to apply. Students who have not previously had the opportunity to develop their leadership skills are encouraged to apply.
