UCLA Law: Sonke Health and Human Rights Fellowship

Deadline: 1 March 2015 - 12:00am

Website: http://www.genderjustice.org.za/

Venue: The University of California, Los Angeles School of Law

Conveners: Sonke Gender Justice and UCLA Law

Southern African law graduates hoping to work with Sonke Gender Justice are encouraged to to apply for the UCLA Law – Sonke Health & Human Rights Fellowship.

The University of California, Los Angeles School of Law (UCLA Law) and Sonke Gender Justice launched the fellowship in 2011, a programme which provides specialised training in impact-oriented public interest law, in the areas of health, human rights, HIV prevention, and gender equality. Fellows receive a full-tuition grant to enroll in UCLA Law’s LLM (Master of Laws) Programme. Sonke will assist fellows with identifying additional funds for their studies (though there is not guarantee that these will be secured). Upon graduating, fellows have the opportunity to apply for a one-year fellowship placement with Sonke Gender Justice Network in Cape Town of Johannesburg.

The fellowship is open to African legal professionals and law graduates holding an LL.B. degree classified second class (division one) or higher from a Southern African law school. Strong applicants will also demonstrate a commitment to health, human rights, gender equality or related issues evidenced by past work or volunteer experience.

Applications must be in by March 1, 2015, for an August 2015 start date at UCLA. For LSAC fee waiver requests please contact Vic Telsino, Director of Graduate Admissions at telesino@law.ucla.edu.
