Renne Public Law Group is pleased to offer a condensed fellowship program designed to introduce law students to local government advocacy. Please distribute this notice to students that may be interested.
The Fellowship Program will be held remotely for a two-week period: June 7-18, 2021. Fellows will receive a $2,000 stipend at the conclusion of the program. The deadline for applications is February 15, 2021 by 5:00pm PST.
The Program is designed to be a “crash course” – immersing students in the field of local government law and initiatives. Fellows will gain valuable knowledge in a wide range of law and legal issues unique to local government, including the Brown Act, the Public Records Act, CEQA, the Meyers Milias-Brown Act, charter law principles and more. The program will include talks with local officials and legal experts, legal research assignments, and discussions about future challenges facing local governments.
