MALDEF/Fried Frank Fellowship

Each year for nearly a decade, MALDEF and Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP have jointly selected an entry-level lawyer for the opportunity to gain experience in both civil rights litigation and the large firm environment.  
The four-year program includes two years at Fried Frank and two years at one of MALDEF's five regional offices. The fellowship is an excellent opportunity for third year law students or recent graduates currently in a judicial clerkship to gain valuable litigation experience at a prestigious New York law firm and litigate on behalf of the Latino community as a civil rights lawyer at MALDEF. 
"Fried Frank has a long and proud tradition of commitment to civil justice.  The MALDEF fellowship provides a unique opportunity to narrow the gulf between private practice and public interest law," commented Janice Mac Avoy, co-chair of Fried Frank's pro bono committee and member of the MALDEF Board of Directors.  "We are proud of our partnership with MALDEF and hope that the training experience we provide better prepares the fellows for the critical work they do in the important areas of civil rights, diversity, education, voting rights and immigrants' rights."
Fried Frank also conducts a fellowship program with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.  At the end of their four-year commitment, fellows have typically returned to the law firm or remained with the civil rights organization. 
"Sophisticated legal training is a building block of effective civil rights advocacy," said Cynthia Valenzuela, MALDEF Director of Litigation.  "Our partnership with Fried Frank advances civil rights in two ways.  The fellowship not only arms future civil rights lawyers with the experience and pedigree of an international law firm, but it also engrains a core commitment to civil rights in attorneys who may find themselves working outside of a civil rights organization."
