There are many opportunities to learn more about the WCL chapter of Marshall-Brennan before submitting an application!
The kick-off of the Marshall-Brennan Fellow application period begins in January and is accompanied with several information sessions and a meet-and-greet table during WCL "Opportunities Day."
Following the written application and interview, select applicants are matched with a school to guest-teach a Marshall-Brennan class. This is required to expose each applicant to the demands that a year-long commitment to teaching in the program requires. In March, a selection committee of faculty members and Marshall-Brennan staff screen the applications and decide who will be offered the chance to participate the following academic year.
Selection is based on the applicants' demonstrated commitment and/or interest in learning through teaching, civic action, and youth empowerment. Applicants selected to be Marshall-Brennan Fellows are required to attend a 3-4 day orientation for the program, usually in August the week before the start of law school classes.
