Internships & Fellowships

Gender Justice is committed to mentoring the next generation of advocates for gender equity. We offer compelling learning experiences for law students, new lawyers, and paralegals. We also welcome inquiries from college students studying public policy, gender theory, nonprofit administration, and related fields.


Established in 2017 in honor of Gender Justice ‘s co-founder emeritus, the Jill Gaulding Law Student Fellowship is a temporary, summer-long fellowship designed to offer a second- or third-year LGBTQ (lesbian / gay / bisexual / transgender / non-binary / queer) and/or BIPOC (black / indigenous / native / person of color) law student an invaluable opportunity to work in a social justice, public interest legal and policy advocacy nonprofit dedicated to fighting gender inequality. The Fellowship is currently accepting contributions to fund a 2020 summer fellow.
