Criminal Law, Intellectual Property, Entertainment & Sports Law Fellowships

Thomas Jefferson School of Law offers two fellowship programs for students interested in Criminal Law, and those interested in Intellectual Property, Entertainment & Sports Law.

The Criminal Law Fellowship Program is designed for law students interested in pursuing a career in criminal law. It offers intensive criminal law exposure from the first day of law school through courses tailored to criminal practice and special events with expert practitioners. Criminal Law Fellows can be certified to practice in criminal court at the beginning of their second year of law school and are encouraged to spend at least two semesters working in a real criminal practice setting. They also receive preference to register for all advanced criminal law and procedure classes.

The Intellectual Property, Entertainment & Sports Law Fellowship Program is designed for law students interested in fields where intellectual property plays an important role, including the sports and entertainment industries and various aspects of business law from small mom-and-pop start-ups to large tech companies. This fellowship provides superior access to intellectual property, sports, and entertainment law in the classroom and in the field. Students can work one-on-one with professors on scholarly projects and have the opportunity to work for academic credit in the Law School's patent and trademark clinics as well as with companies, law firms, and public entities that deal with intellectual property issues. The fellowship regularly hosts events with scholars and practicing lawyers. Students in the fellowship receive preference to register in all fellowship-related electives.
