LSFN Public Interest Law 
Bar Fellowship

Supporting Tomorrow's Lawyers Today

The LSFN Public Interest Law Post-Graduate Bar Fellowship program was designed in the midst of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic to address the needs of Bay Area Legal Services Organizations by connecting them to recent graduates of Bay Area Law Schools who are faced with a delay in their ability to take the California Bar Exam.

Based on the success of the Fellowship and the continuing need public interest fellowship programs, the LSFN has decided to continue to offer the LSFN Fellowship in 2022.

The 2021 cohort of Fellows completed their Fellowship in December 2021, collectively contributing more than 15,500 hours of legal services for communities in the Bay Area. 

 

In January 2022, the LSFN hosted a virtual Stakeholder Briefing to disseminate key insights from the Fellowship's second year and allow Fellows to share their experiences.
