and Advocacy for Women in Africa Fellowship Program
Deadline: September 30, 2009
The Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa Fellowship Program
at Georgetown University in the US is accepting applications from
female human rights lawyers. The entire LAWA Fellowship Program
is approximately 14 months long (from July of the first year through
August of the following year), after which the LAWA Fellows return
home to continue advocating for women's rights in their own countries.
The LAWA Program starts in July, when the Fellows attend the Georgetown
Law Center's Foundations of American Law and Legal Education course.
From August through May, the LAWA Fellows earn a Master of Laws
(LL.M.) degree at Georgetown with an emphasis on international women's
human rights and complete a major graduate paper on a significant
women's rights issue in their home countries. After graduation,
the LAWA Fellows then have an opportunity to engage in challenging
work assignments for several months at various public interest organizations
to learn about different advocacy strategies to advance women's
human rights, before returning home to continue advancing women's
human rights in their own countries. Find out more
