The U.S. Supreme Court Fellows program is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 term. The fellowship is open to both junior and mid-career candidates. Four fellowships are awarded each year, and each fellowship is unique in its scope and focus. Interested persons can read more about the program here:
Although the U.S. Supreme Court Fellows program has been in existence for forty years, very little is known about this discreet yet prestigious fellowship. This Article provides an in-depth look at the four placement opportunities (the Office of the Counselor to the Chief Justice of the United States, the Federal Judicial Center, the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts and the U.S. Sentencing Commission), the application process and opportunities that can arise during and after the fellowship. Not only does the discussion outline the day-to-day activities of the fellows, it also describes recent changes to the program. The U.S. Supreme Court Fellows program is open to applicants from a wide variety of disciplines, including law, political science, history, public administration and criminology, and is particularly relevant to those with an interest in judicial administration, international and comparative law, criminal law and procedural law.
The application process is described at http://www.supremecourt.gov/fellows/default.aspx. Applications are due by November 14, 2014.
