Postgraduate Fellowships

A commitment to postgraduate legal education makes the Center for Justice unique.

RWULaw Center For Justice Fellowship

The RWULaw Center for Justice Fellowship program employs recent graduates of Roger Williams University School of Law (within the past five years) as staff attorneys for a two-year fellowship period.

Fellows will work closely with the Center’s Executive Director and other licensed attorneys in all facets of the Center’s programmatic delivery. Fellows are selected based on their interest in social and economic justice, commitment to social change through the tools of the law, and readiness to work in a collaborative and energetic atmosphere. Fellows are a critical element of the core legal work of the Center, engaging in both direct representation and strategic litigation.

Interested in becoming a fellow with the Rhode Island Center for Justice? Please contact Christopher Gerlica.

Third year law students who are interested in pursuing a national fellowship or a post-graduate law school fellowship with the Center should send a letter of interest and a resume to the Center at
