NIPNLG Fellowships

Legal Fellow

NIPNLG periodically invites second- or third-year law students and recent law graduates to apply for a sponsorship opportunity for Skadden, EJW, OSJI, and other national or law school fellowships. We are especially interested in projects that address border enforcement and that challenge illegal entry and reentry prosecutions for asylum seekers, as well as projects that involve community-led and community-focused immigrant rights initiatives. The Fall 2020 Legal Fellowship is filled; please check back at a later date, however, for subsequent NIPNLG legal fellowship opportunities.

The Michael Maggio Immigrants’ Rights Summer Fellowship

The Michael Maggio Immigrants’ Rights Summer Fellowship was established jointly in 2009 by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CHRCL), and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild (NIPNLG), to commemorate the life and legal contributions of Michael Maggio.

The deadline has passed for this year, but please check the website at for future fellowships.
