If you’re interested in learning more about the federal judiciary first hand, consider applying for the Supreme Court of the United States Fellows Program. Fellows gain insight into the policy issues facing the judiciary as well as learn more about administrative functions.
Applications will be accepted through Nov. 30, and the program seeks people from diverse professional and academic backgrounds. Fellows contribute to the work of the Supreme Court, Federal Judicial Center, Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, and the U.S. Sentencing Commission.
The one-year fellowship begins in fall 2013.
Faegre Baker Daniels attorney and former executive director of the Indiana Pro Bono Commission Monica Fennell served as the 2007-2008 fellow assigned to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. Fennell told the Indiana Lawyer in 2008 that her work as a fellow gave her a new perspective on the courts that would allow her to better work with judges and court staff.
