Class of 2020 JD Distinguished Fellowship Program

American University Washington College of Law is proud to sponsor the JD Distinguished Fellowship Program (“JDDF Program”).  The JDDF Program provides funding for selected graduates performing substantive legal or law-related work at external organizations, enabling each Fellow to continue her or his legal training while concurrently seeking long-term employment.

The Class of 2020 JDDF Program is now open. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the WCL community and potential candidates and host organizations, we have extended the JD Distinguished Fellowship deadline for the Class of 2020 to May 22, 2020. Awardees will be announced Friday, June 26, 2020. Please work with your host organization and the OCPD if you expect your fall position to be impacted. Funding will accommodate a fellowship term between August 3, 2020 and January 31, 2021.
