The Foundation's Fellowship Program

The opportunity to sponsor newly admitted attorneys as fellows serving at Ohio's legal aids has proven to be an effective tool to recruit recent law school graduates interested in public interest law. The competitive fellowships bring to legal aid some of the most talented law school graduates, to focus on specific and urgent issues facing low-income individuals and families.
