MSLF Fellowship

Posted on: Mar 19, 2018

Mountain States Legal Foundation’s Fellowship Program provides a unique and practice-focused opportunity to current law students interested in impact litigation on issues of fundamental constitutional rights, private property rights, government overreach, public lands, and natural resources.  Fellows work directly with MSLF attorneys to research complex and novel legal issues, draft motions, memoranda, and legal briefs, and assist attorneys with litigation preparation.  MSLF also strives, dependent on available case opportunities, to give each fellow the opportunity to work on an amicus brief for the Supreme Court, or one of the federal circuit courts, and to attend hearing and oral arguments when possible.  Fellows are also presented with numerous networking opportunities within the broader, liberty movement, as well as within the Denver legal community.

Although a limited number of fellowships are offered, placements are available for the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.  MSLF Fellows should not only possess strong legal writing and research skills, but should personally identify with MSLF’s mission.  Fellows should be seeking a greater understanding of the legal strategy decisions a public interest legal foundation makes in case selection, development, and litigation.  The fellowship is an in-house position and may be on a for-credit or volunteer basis, dependent on the fellow’s law school.
