Under the direction of the director of the ChildLaw Policy Institute, housed in the Civitas ChildLaw Center at Loyola’s School of Law, the Fellowship provides an opportunity for a recent law school graduate to gain experience in the area of clinical law teaching specific to policy and legislative reform. The Clinical Fellow will work closely with the Policy Institute’s director, participating in the Institute’s policy initiatives.

The Fellow will be encouraged to develop independent areas of interest, consistent with the mission of the ChildLaw Policy Institute. Qualifications
