Join PILC on Wednesday, November 8, at 12:00 PM in the PILC/OCS Library to learn about post-graduate project fellowship opportunities with Justice Catalyst (http://justicecatalyst.org/). Justice Catalyst activates path-breaking approaches to social justice lawyering and affirmative litigation that have real-world impact and improve the lives of low-wage workers, the poor, and the marginalized. The Catalyst is looking for diverse, creative, self-starting fellows who will pursue year-long, project-based fellowships, with a possibility of renewal. The Catalyst prioritizes groundbreaking ideas, including early-stage projects that are boundary-pushing in the pursuit of systemic solutions to major injustices, whether at an established legal organization or an organization looking to hire its first lawyer.
Information about the fellowship is available at http://justicecatalyst.org/get-started/; candidates are invited to submit an optional short prospectus and resume by November 15, with a full application due by January 10. Examples of current project priority areas for Justice Catalyst can be found here: http://justicecatalyst.org/sample/.
Date: Wednesday, November 8th
Room: PILC Library (FH 442)
