The Alan Klinger Civil Rights Fellowship is a paid term-time internship that will allow the fellow to work with ADL’s VP of Civil Rights, National Civil Rights Counsel and other members of the Civil Rights team on various projects related to ADL’s mission to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment for all. These projects may include, but would not be limited to, legal research, amicus briefs, legislative testimony, social media posts, op-eds and blogs, and coalition-building. The issues on which the Fellow would work include antisemitism, hate crimes, domestic extremism, cyberhate, voting rights, immigration, church-state separation, LGBTQ rights, and criminal justice reform. Fellows will come away with greater familiarity with relevant civil rights laws as well as insight into how ADL develops and advances its civil rights agenda.
The Fellowship is being offered to students in the fall and/or spring terms of their second or third year of law school who have a demonstrated interest in pursuing civil rights and social justice work consistent with ADL’s mission. Fellows are expected to work 10-15 hours per week during the semester and will be paid $20 per hour. This equals up to $4,200 if working 15 hours per week for the full 14-week semester.
The Fellowship is currently accepting applications for the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 terms. To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume, via email to Steven M. Freeman, SFreeman@adl.org, with “Application for Alan Klinger Fellowship” in the subject line.
