The National Center for Youth Law (NCYL) and Michigan Law are currently accepting applications for the 2022-23 Fiza Quraishi Fellowship. Join this casual conversation to learn about this unique, one-year post-graduate fellowship. NCYL attorney Atasi Uppal, Michigan Law '11, will share information about late attorney and Michigan Law graduate Fiza Quraishi, discuss the spectrum of civil and human rights work at NCYL, and provide tips on how to put together a successful application. 1Ls, 2Ls and 3Ls are welcome to attend and ask questions about NCYL and the application process.
NCYL has worked for 50 years to improve the lives of children and youth - primarily youth of color and youth living in low-income families. NCYL weaves together research, public awareness, policy development, technical assistance and impact litigation to ensure governmental systems provide the support these children and youth need to thrive. Our staff work closely with community and advocacy partners to make change in the areas of immigration, foster care, juvenile justice, sex trafficking, mental health, health, reproductive justice, and education. Fellows may work out of NCYL’s offices in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, or Oakland, CA. Email Atasi Uppal, Senior Policy Attorney at NCYL, at firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions. Applications are due on February 13, 2022. Apply via Symplicity, ID #30973. For more information, go to https://michigan.law.umich.edu/resource-center/michigan-law-fiza-qurais…This is a Zoom Event.
