Law For Black Lives and the Movement Law Lab are excited to announce the Legal Innovators Fellowship!
Movement Law Lab and Law For Black Lives are partnering to offer an eight-month fellowship for legal innovators seeking to accelerate the impact, scale, reach, and depth of movement lawyering in Black communities. Innovators may apply to develop an early-stage idea or to accelerate the scale/impact of an existing project with a proven track-record. Legal advocates at any stage of their careers are encouraged to apply.
Housed at the Movement Law Lab, and co-curated by Law For Black Lives, the fellowship will provide 5-7 visionary legal innovators with financial support, training, mentorship, and other resources to turn their ideas into reality. Fellows will have the opportunity to advance their projects while being in a learning community with other legal innovators from the Law For Black Lives network.
Applications are due November 1st, 2017. The inaugural 2018 Legal Innovators will be announced in December.
