Announcing the Boardman Clark Public Interest Summer Fellowship Program

The UW Law School Office of Career and Professional Development in partnership with Boardman Clark is pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2022 Boardman Clark Public Interest Summer Fellowship.

The Boardman Clark Summer Public Interest Fellowship will provide $4500 in financial assistance to a UW Law student who has completed their first year of law school and has accepted (or is seeking) full time summer employment in 2022 to do public interest law in the greater Madison area.

The Program is primarily intended for students from historically underrepresented backgrounds, including students who participate in UW's Legal Education Opportunities program. Recognizing that people of all backgrounds thrive in a more equitable community, Boardman Clark establishes this program in support of the Law School's commitment to preparing its students to help address persistent problems of racial, social and economic inequity.

Prospective Boardman Clark Summer Fellows must complete an application available through the Office of Career and Professional Development and are encouraged to discuss their summer internship work at events open to the Law School community and hosted by Boardman Clark.
