A condensed fellowship program designed to introduce law students and public administration and public policy graduate students to local government advocacy.
About the Program
The Program is designed to be a “crash course” – immersing students in the field of local government law and public policy 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. The program is intended to supplement additional summer programs at private law firms and government agencies.
