FJP is looking for passionate law students to participate in the second year of its Summer Fellows Program. The program places rising 2L and 3L FJP Summer Fellows in summer clerkship positions in the offices of some of the most inspiring elected prosecutors around the country, including the Philadelphia, Brooklyn, San Francisco, and Houston District Attorney’s Offices, among others. Summer Fellows will be part of a cohort of accomplished law students from around the nation interested in criminal justice reform and will have a unique opportunity to receive hands-on experience working on criminal cases and other assignments typical of internships in prosecutor’s offices, while also undertaking a policy reform project on an issue of interest to that office. The Program is designed for students interested in exploring careers in criminal justice reform and who have a passion for justice and fairness; who can bring greater diversity of thought, background, and experience to a prosecutor’s office; who recognize the central role that the prosecutor has in shaping our criminal justice priorities; and who are interested in influencing this new thinking.

“The FJP Summer Fellows Program provides a really unique opportunity to participate in the prosecutorial reform “movement” as it is happening. Having the chance to actually learn about the different FJP issues from the perspective of a prosecutor has been extremely rewarding and provided me with greater insight into the criminal justice system. The experience and exposure alone make the program worthwhile.”
