    Description of the Clinic

    The Social Enterprise & Nonprofit Law Clinic at Georgetown University Law Center offers pro bono corporate and transactional legal services to social enterprises, nonprofit organizations, worker cooperatives, and select small businesses headquartered in Washington, D.C. and working locally or internationally. Through the Clinic, law students learn to translate legal theory into legal practice by engaging in the supervised practice of law for educational credit.

    The Clinic’s local focus not only allows the Clinic to give back to the community it calls home, but also gives students an opportunity to explore and understand the challenges and strengths of the D.C. community beyond the Georgetown Law campus. As D.C. experiences increasing income inequality, it becomes increasingly important for the Clinic to provide legal assistance to organizations that serve and empower adversely impacted communities.

    Description of Fellowship

    The two-year fellowship is an ideal position for a transactional lawyer interested in transitioning into legal academia and developing teaching and supervisory abilities in a setting that emphasizes a dual commitment—clinical education of law students and transactional law employed in the public interest. The fellow will have several areas of responsibility, with an increasing role as the fellowship progresses. Over the course of the fellowship, the fellow will: (i) supervise students in representing organizations on transactional, operational, and corporate governance matters, (ii) share responsibility for teaching seminar sessions, and (iii) share in the administrative and case handling responsibilities of the Clinic. Fellows also participate in a clinical pedagogy seminar and other activities designed to support an interest in clinical teaching and legal education. Successful completion of the fellowship results in the award of an L.L.M. in Advocacy from Georgetown University. The fellowship start date is July 1, 2024, and the fellowship is for two years, ending June 30, 2026.

    Teaching fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $70,000 in the first year and $75,000 in the second year, health and dental benefits, and all tuition and fees in the LL.M. program. As full-time students, teaching fellows qualify for deferment of their student loans. In addition, teaching fellows may be eligible for loan repayment assistance from their law schools.


    Applicants must have at least 3 years of post J.D. legal experience. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in a transactional area of practice such as nonprofit law and tax, community economic development law, corporate law, intellectual property, and real estate or housing law. Applicants with a strong commitment to economic justice are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be admitted or be able to be admitted to the District of Columbia Bar within 6 months of entering the fellowship.

    Application Process

    Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis. To apply, send a resume, an official or unofficial law school transcript, and a detailed letter of interest as soon as possible but no later than December 1, 2023. The letter should be no longer than two pages and address a) why you are interested in this fellowship; b) what you can contribute to the Clinic; c) your experience with nonprofit law, community economic development, transactional matters, corporate law, or other fields of law pertinent to the clinic’s law practice areas; and d) optionally, a brief statement about any educational, familial, cultural, economic, and social experiences that have helped to shape your educational and professional goals or will contribute to your future career after the fellowship concludes. Please address your application to Professor Alicia Plerhoples, Georgetown Law, 600 New Jersey Ave., NW, Suite 352, Washington, D.C. 20001, and email it to Clinic Office Manager, Anna Harty, at Applications will only be accepted via email.

    GEORGETOWN UNIVERISTY LAW CENTER is hiring a clinical teaching fellow/supervising attorney for its Domestic Violence Clinic. 

    Fellowship Description

    The Domestic Violence Clinic (DVC) hires one clinical teaching fellow/supervising attorney each year, for a two-year fellowship position. DVC fellows receive intensive, supportive mentorship as they develop skills in litigation, teaching, and legal scholarship; fellows are well-prepared for a career in clinical teaching or public interest practice.

    DVC fellows develop skills as clinical teachers. They supervise law students as they represent survivors of domestic abuse in civil protection order cases in D.C. Superior Court. As supervisors, fellows teach students to develop a range of skills—from building a strong and empathic attorney-client relationship; to acquiring litigation practice skills; to exploring legal ethics; to becoming creative problem-solvers, trauma-informed lawyers, and excellent storytellers. They help students critically examine the psychological dynamics of intimate partner violence, the harms inflicted by our society’s systemic and institutional responses, and various alternatives to solutions rooted in the existing legal system.

    DVC fellows also learn to design clinic seminar classes on a range of topics, including child custody, professional ethics, and the individual and social dynamics of intimate partner violence. Faculty provide close support as fellows design the classes they will teach, focusing on how to navigate potential student learning challenges, how to develop an individual teaching “voice,” and how to facilitate interesting, challenging, and thought-provoking conversations and classroom exercises.

    DVC fellows receive extensive training and mentorship as they continue to improve their lawyering and litigation skills. Fellows provide direct representation to a small number of clients experiencing family abuse, primarily outside of the academic semester.

    Fellows are offered extensive opportunities to engage in legal scholarship. DVC faculty and others in the broader Georgetown community provide a wide range of support to fellows interested in researching, writing, and publishing their work. 

    First-year DVC fellows join the full community of Georgetown’s clinical teaching fellows in a course on clinical pedagogy co-taught by members of the Georgetown clinical faculty. They are also part of the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program, where they have opportunities to collaborate with lawyer-fellows working on a wide variety of women’s rights legal issues at placements throughout Washington, D.C., and learn from leaders in the national and local feminist legal community.

    Preference will be given to applicants who have a background or demonstrated interest in family law, domestic or sexual violence, and/or poverty law, and to applicants who have trial practice experience. Applicants must be admitted to a Bar at the time they submit their application. A fellow offered the DVC fellowship position who is not a member of the D.C. Bar must apply for admission by waiver immediately following acceptance.

    The fellowship runs from early July 2024 through June 2026. The first-year salary is $70,000; the second-year salary is $75,000. Upon completing the fellowship, Georgetown awards fellows an LL.M. in Advocacy.

    The DVC welcomes and considers applications from any and all interested applicants without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, veteran, or other protected status.

    Application Process

    Please complete the Women's Law & Public Policy Fellowship Program application and submit it to both Professors Deborah Epstein and Rachel Camp ( and to the Fellowship Program (
