To apply, you need not have located or secured an internship. If you are selected as a fellow, LAPA and the Yale Law School Liman Program can help you find an internship in an area of your interest. Those selected as fellows must attend the Liman Public Interest Law Colloquium at Yale Law School. This is a day and a quarter event on March 28-29, 2019. LAPA will pay your expenses. Fellows are required to submit a final report describing their work at the conclusion of their fellowship and to participate in a workshop for Princeton students and faculty at which they share their experiences.
