Hillary Rodham Clinton Law Fellowship 2018-19


Georgetown Law and the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace, and Security are pleased to announce the Hillary Rodham Clinton Law Fellowship for JD graduates from the class of 2018. The fellowship is generously supported by alumni Rep. John Delaney, L’88 and April McClain-Delaney, L’89. This fellowship is available to 2018 JD and LLM graduates of Georgetown Law.

The fellowship will be based at the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security in Washington, DC, with some international travel. By training, equipping and supporting a growing corps of young researchers, the Hillary Rodham Clinton Law Fellowship program will not only inform global leaders in the field of women, peace and security, but will help shape the agenda. The Fellow will also participate in Georgetown’s Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program, which provides mentoring, professional development training, and educational programming to individuals committed to careers advancing women’s rights.

Fellowship Duties: The Hillary Rodham Clinton Law Fellowship Program provides opportunities to a recent graduate to conduct academically rigorous, practically relevant, policy-oriented research to address key knowledge gaps in the field of women, peace and security. The research is expected to involve some international travel, and generate research papers that will be published by the Institute and submitted to peer reviewed journals. The Fellow will have the opportunity to participate in meetings with expert practitioners and thought leaders. The fellowship will also provide opportunities to present and disseminate the research findings.
