The Fried Frank Civil Rights Fellowship provides an entry-level lawyer the opportunity to spend two years as a Fried Frank litigator and then two years as a staff attorney with NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF).

The Fried Frank Civil Rights Fellowship Committee annually selects one Fellow for one organization, alternating each year between LDF and MALDEF. For the 2020 Fried Frank Civil Rights Fellowship, the Committee is selecting a fellow for LDF.

The 2020 Fried Frank Civil Rights Fellow will begin their employment at Fried Frank with the Firm’s first-year associate class in the fall of 2020.
