NIU College of Law is excited to announce that it has been selected for the fourth consecutive year by the Illinois Bar Foundation to offer a post-graduate fellowship opportunity.

This is a paid fellowship to provide civil legal services to eligible clients at the Zeke Giorgi Legal Clinic in Rockford.  The selected fellow will work for nine months beginning in mid-August 2017.

Depending upon the receipt of additional funding from grants and donors, there is a possibility that the fellowship could be extended up to an additional three months.

All applicants must be either:
  • a recent graduate from December 2016 who already has a valid Illinois law license, or 
  • a May 2017 graduate who plans to take the Illinois Bar Examination in July 2017.
If you are interested in applying, please fill out the application, then email the completed form and supporting documents to Clinical Associate Professor Wendy Vaughn by May 31, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to email Professor Vaughn or call her at (815) 962-9984. We hope to interview candidates and select the fellow in June 2017.
