Tycko & Zavareei LLP is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for the 2022-2024 Tycko & Zavareei LLP Public Interest Fellowship (the “Fellowship”). The Fellowship, which is in its eleventh year, is designed for recent law school graduates, and the firm will be conducting interviews of current 3L law students and current law clerks beginning in the summer of 2021. The Fellowship will run for approximately two years, beginning in the fall of 2022. The firm’s primary office is in Washington, D.C. and also maintains offices in Oakland, California and Los Angeles, California. The Firm is hiring two Fellows – one based in Washington, DC and one based in Oakland, CA – for this Fellowship term.
The Fellowship is intended for individuals with a demonstrated commitment to a career in public interest law. The Fellows will be employees of the firm for the duration of the Fellowship. During that time, the Fellows will each have the opportunity to spend three months working directly for a public interest organization based in DC or California. Past Fellows have worked with the following well-established, highly respected non-profits:
During the remainder of the Fellowship, the Fellows will work side-by-side with the firm’s attorneys on public interest litigation. Tycko & Zavareei LLP has a strong commitment to public interest work, and an active practice in areas such as consumer rights, employee rights, and whistleblower rights. The Fellows will be exposed to a wide variety of cases, and will be given substantial responsibility. The current salary for Fellows is $75,000 for the first year and $80,000 for the second year. It is possible that the salary will increase prior the start of the Fellowship. The Fellows will be eligible for the Firm’s health insurance plan, will receive three weeks of paid vacation per year, and may be eligible for bonuses.
