CREEC is civil rights non-profit that specializes in high impact litigation and advocacy fighting all forms of exclusion and discrimination in order to obtain effective and enduring systemic reforms that redeem the promise of fairness embodied in our nation’s civil rights laws. The CREEC Fellowship is an opportunity for a recent law school graduate, law clerk, or returning lawyer to contribute creatively to the work of a small civil rights non-profit staffed by lawyers with decades of experience in civil rights advocacy and litigation in a broad range of areas. The Fellow will also work with grassroots groups and co-counsel at partner public interest and private pro bono law firms, and gain experience in all phases of CREEC’s work, including advocacy, litigation, public education and outreach, investigations, brainstorming, and playing with the office dogs.
The Fellowship will pay $55,000 plus health insurance, retirement plan, and free parking. You should be a member in good standing of a state bar or planning to take the bar or reinstate your license before you start. The Fellow will work out of CREEC’s Denver office.
Your application should include:
- Law school transcript;
- Writing sample (anything as long as you wrote it, largely unedited by others);
- Cover letter telling us specifically why you think you’re ideal for this fellowship and how you can contribute enthusiastically to CREEC’s mission; and
- Anything else you would like us to consider: blog posts; apps; computer games; Peep dioramas; webinars; inventions; photos from the protest you organized; etc.
Please submit those materials to email@example.com before December 31, 2016.
