Decennial Fellows Program

for select incoming first-year law students

The Program:

The Fordham Center on Law and Information Policy (CLIP) Decennial Fellows Program, founded to commemorate CLIP's tenth anniversary, provides an opportunity to cultivate interest and gain expertise in the rapidly growing fields of information and technology law, as well as meet and network with professionals in the field, Fordham faculty and other interested students.

Responsibilities:

Fordham CLIP selects 5-6 incoming first-year Fordham Law students as Decennial Fellows each academic year.  Decennial Fellows attend monthly discussions over lunch or afternoon refreshments, Information Law and Policy Roundtable sessions, and other events typically open to students by invitation only.  These events focus on discussions of legal and policy aspects of intellectual property law, information law and information technology law.  With a minimal time commitment, Decennial Fellows also have an opportunity to develop valuable legal writing and public speaking skills associated with their contributions to CLIP activities and research.  Incoming first-year law students frequently seek ways to get involved with law school centers, institutes and programs without diverting attention from a rigorous course load.  The Fordham CLIP Decennial Fellows Program is a fantastic way to do so!

How to Apply for the 2017-18 Academic Year:

Please send a statement of interest and a resume to CLIP@law.fordham.edu.  A professional or academic background in internet, privacy or technology matters is helpful, but not at all required.  Applications are due by the close of business on Friday, July 21, 2017.
