Our Mentorship Program pairs law students with two mentors in the appellate field. Additionally, students receive access to appellate-focused programming and other resources throughout the year. 90% of last year’s program participants felt more confident about pursuing appellate work after completing our program. 

The application is open to all law students of color interested in the appellate field, including rising 1Ls. We encourage students who enjoy legal research and writing, thinking deeply about complex legal issues, and are driven to make an impact on the issues that matter to them to consider applying.
