2012 ACS Convention Public Interest Fellowships
ACS will again be providing a limited number of Public Interest Fellowships for this year's ACS National Convention. Fellowship recipients must be lawyers in practice for five years or less (graduation year 2007 or later) and must work in government or public interest. Fellowship recipients will receive convention registration, lodging and a stipend for travel. You must be a current dues-paying member of ACS to be eligible for this fellowship. Click here to join.
The 2012 ACS National Convention will take place at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC from June 14-16.
The ACS National Convention provides unparalleled networking opportunities for progressive lawyers. There will again be dedicated networking time following each panel discussion and fellowship recipients will be able to meet leaders from their respective practice areas, as well as leaders from their geographic area.
In order to strengthen ties between fellowship recipients and ACS and engage them in the work of the organization, we require that Fellowship recipients join ACS and do at least three of the following:
- Speak to a student chapter
- Write an ACSblog post
- Recruit five new paid members at any level
- Volunteer for Constitution in the Classroom
- Organize a lawyer chapter event
- Mentor an ACS affiliated law student or young lawyer
- Host a mentorship dinner during Convention
- Host an out-of-town student during Convention
