Georgetown Law's Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program

Here are a few important announcements from the Georgetown Law's Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program (WLPPFP):

For all those Washingtonians out there (or anyone else who happens to be in DC this week), they have extended an invitation to the presentation on women's human rights in Africa by its senior Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa (LAWA) Fellows, this Thursday, July 23 at 3:30 p.m. at Georgetown Law. For further information, including instructions on how to RSVP and for directions, click here.

Secondly, there’s an invitation for applications for fellowships with the Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program for women's rights lawyers in the U.S., and with the LAWA Fellowship Program for women's rights lawyers in Africa. The Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program offers Fellowships for public interest lawyers from across the United States who are committed to advancing women's rights throughout their careers. Throughout the Fellowship year, participants gain invaluable experience by working on women's issues in Washington, D.C. with a public interest organization or governmental agency and by participating in educational and professional development opportunities provided by WLPPFP. The deadline for applications for the 2010-2011 Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program is Monday, November 2, 2009. Applicants must be graduates of law schools accredited by the American Bar Association, and must show a demonstrated commitment to advancing women's rights throughout their careers.
