Visiting Fellow Information

NAGTRI continually seeks qualified recent law school graduates for our Visiting Fellow program. NAGTRI does not provide funding, so Fellows must receive funding from their law school’s “Bridge to Practice” program, Public Interest Fellowship or the equivalent. Fellows are expected to begin their fellowship by September 15, 2020, and must commit to a minimum of six months though a 12 month commitment is preferred. We welcome 3L students and recent law school graduates (in the past 12 months) to apply or contact us for additional information. Fellows should be proficient in LexisNexis and Microsoft Office.

Duties of Visiting Fellows

  • Conduct research on state and territory attorneys general legal issues and author materials for attorney general offices
  • CLE course research and development
  • Attend meetings with federal agency staff, congressional staff, and international organizations
  • Attend NAAG moot courts for Supreme Court arguments
  • Assist with developing training materials and case files for courses tailored to the Attorney General community
  • Help provide legal research for substantive trainings, such as consumer protection.

These are examples of potential work. It is not all-inclusive and timing will dictate projects and assignments.
