Our U.S. Fellows work in Washington, D.C., with a variety of organizations involved in legal and policy issues affecting women, such as domestic violence, employment discrimination, sexual harassment, immigration, education, health care, homelessness, poverty, disability rights, civil rights, HIV/AIDS, and international women’s human rights. The Fellows participate in educational programming such as professional development trainings and seminars on current women’s legal issues organized by WLPPFP, and they may also audit Georgetown University Law Center courses related to women’s issues. Over 270 Fellows have participated in WLPPFP working at over 50 organizations on these crucial women’s rights issues.
The Women's Law & Public Policy Fellowship Program (WLPPFP) at the Georgetown University Law Center offers one year Fellowships for public interest lawyers from the United States who are committed to advancing women's rights throughout their careers. Although each Fellowship experience is unique, each of our fellows works to advance women's rights at a D.C.-based organization, learn together about substantive women’s rights issues, explore a multitude of career paths through which they can advocate for women’s equality, and develop their legal and interpersonal skills through seminars, training, networking events and other Fellowship activities. Students of all genders are invited to apply.
