About the Fellowship

The Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Foundation and Inner City Law Center are accepting applications for their summer fellowship position.

ICLC’s Homeless Veterans Project is one of the few projects in the nation that offers free legal services to homeless veterans, and it serves both male and female veterans. In 2009, ICLC began to focus on the needs of the growing number of female veterans who were returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and becoming homeless. ICLC is the only legal services organization in the country that explicitly focuses on homeless women veterans. For more information on ICLC and its work, visit www.innercitylaw.org. The WLALA Foundation grew out of WLALA’s former Public Action Grant Foundation, which was developed to facilitate the pro bono activities of WLALA.
The WLALA Foundation provides scholarships to law students, fellowship opportunities, and volunteer assistance to victims of domestic violence and to women veterans applying for healthcare and disability benefits through its collaboration with Inner City Law Center’s Homeless Veterans Project.
