The ABA encourages 1Ls and 2Ls to apply for the Janet D. Steiger Fellowship Project. Students selected will serve eight or ten weeks during the summer of 2017 in the consumer protection or consumer affairs offices of participating state and territorial governments.
The application period is November 10, 2016 through January 31, 2017. Applications and full details are available online at: http://AmBar.org/Steiger. Submission of all required materials must be sent via email to: ABASteigerFellowship@americanbar.org
Each selected student will receive $6,000 stipend for the summer (administered through the offices of the state/territory attorneys general and subject to certain federal taxes). In the event that a Steiger Fellow is not living at home during their fellowship, there is a possiblity that a limited optional travel/housing stipend allowance may be available.
Please refer any questions or concerns to: ABASteigerFellowship@americanbar.org
The ABA’s Antitrust and Consumer Protection section is a valuable resource for students interested in consumer protection, and I recommend checking it out more generally.
