Summer Fellowships

A unique opportunity to experience the law, explore career options, build relationships, and help fund your legal education. Real experience, a guaranteed position, and a paycheck - what a great way to spend the summer after your first year of law school!

Each spring USC Law's Admissions Office awards top admitted applicants our Summer Fellowships, which provide a guaranteed paid position during the summer following the first year of law school.

The Fellowship is offered in partnership with prestigious law firms, businesses, and public-interest organizations. Fellows spend half the summer at a law firm and half at a business - learning about legal transactions from both sides - or spend the whole summer at a public-interest organization. When they return to their second year of law school, Fellows bring solid work experience to guide the next steps in their education.
