Program on Church, State & Society Announces Summer Fellowship Opportunity

Author: Denise Wager

The Notre Dame Law School’s The Program on Church, State & Society is excited to announce that the Program will award up to two summer fellowships, in the amount of $10,000 each, for the summer of 2016 to students working for a religious institution in a legal capacity.

This is an outstanding opportunity for any Notre Dame law student to get exposure in the area of religious-institutions practice, and explore the many legal career options available that combine church, state, and society.

Students may work for (1) the Office of the General Counsel of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, (2) a religious-institution placement of their own choosing (e.g., a religious charity, educational institution, social-welfare agency, health-care provider, etc.) that is consistent with the goals for the fellowships, or (3) the religious-institutions practice of the law firm of Lewis Roca Rothgerber in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Interested students should submit a cover letter, describing their interest and relevant experience and background, along with a current resume, to Prof. Richard W. Garnett, before Feb. 15, 2016.
