NACA announces consumer law fellowship to help new law school grads break into consumer law practice

I think this is great. Here’s the announcement:

The National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA) is pleased to announce its first annual 2-year Consumer Law Fellowship. For the first fellowship we are offering, NACA is partnering with Jacksonville Area Legal Aid (JALA). The program is designed to encourage new law school graduates to pursue a career in consumer protection law.

During the two years of the program, the fellow will be an employee of JALA. In year one, the fellow will work in the consumer protection unit of JALA and represent the program s low-income clients. In year two, the fellow will be assigned to two different Florida based private consumer protection law firms (for six months each), where they will continue to represent clients, grow their skills as consumer lawyers and learn the challenges and rewards of the practice of consumer law in a private law setting.

A more complete description of the fellowship, including the application, can be found here: The Application deadline is April 15, 2024.
