Selection Process

Selection Process

Fellows are selected on the basis of academic ability, leadership potential, experience in the field and, most importantly, a demonstrated commitment to using their legal training to promote the welfare of children and families. Finalists may be invited to the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University to interview with the fellowship Selection Committee, consisting of Hofstra Law faculty and alumni, family law practitioners and mental health professionals. The academic achievement and aptitude of each applicant is considered carefully by the Selection Committee, and an affirmative attempt is made to ensure the diversity of each entering class of fellows.
