Each year, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law selects up to five fellows from among students admitted to the entering J.D. class. Fellowships are awarded to students who intend to pursue careers in child and family advocacy.

Fellows are eligible for up to two $7,500 summer stipends to cover living expenses while completing a qualifying internship.

After graduation, fellows are expected to use their specialized training to represent the legal interests of children and families.
