The Ford Foundation recently announced that 25 Stanford Law School students were selected to participate in the foundation’s new Law School Public Interest Fellowship Program. The Stanford Law students will work with Ford grantee organizations around the world during the summer of 2013 to improve the lives of others through legal analysis, litigation, and public policy advocacy. The Ford Foundation Law School Public Interest Fellowship Program was first announced in September 2012. Stanford Law was chosen as one of four law schools to share a $1.7 million grant designed to support 10-week summer student fellowships focused on international and domestic public interest practice. The fellowships are open to first- and second-year law students. Of those selected each receives $15,000 over the summer, providing the opportunity for substantive and transformative experiences as interns in the field of public interest law. The John and Terry Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law administers the Ford fellowship program at Stanford.
