ABA Announces Paid Consumer Protection Fellowship for Law Students to Work in AG’s Offices Over the Summer

From the announcement:

The Janet D. Steiger Fellowship Project provides law students the extraordinary opportunity to work in the consumer protection departments of state and territorial Offices of Attorneys General and other consumer protection agencies throughout the United States. The eight to ten week paid Fellowships were initiated in 2004 by the ABA Section of Antitrust Law, in cooperation with the National Association of Attorneys General, as a consumer protection outreach initiative to introduce law students to the rewards of legal careers in public service.  A total of 325 Steiger Fellowships have been awarded through the summer of 2017.

The Council of the Section approved funding for states to participate in the 2018 Steiger Fellowship Project. Each selected student will receive a $6,000 stipend (subject to certain federal taxes and administered through the offices of the state attorneys general). This Project continues to be a tribute to the memory of the late Janet D. Steiger, one of America's great public servants who, during her remarkable tenure as FTC Chairman, dramatically improved cooperation, communication and coordination between state and federal consumer protection and antitrust enforcement agencies.
