Lambda Legal New York, NY

Lambda Legal invites recent and prospective law graduates to request our sponsorship for mission-oriented fellowship proposals. For years, we have hosted fellows funded by foundations, nonprofits, law firms, and law schools to participate in litigation and advocacy on a wide range of issues.

We are interested in project proposals that seek to advance the rights of LGBT people and people living with HIV. We are particularly interested in projects addressing the rights of transgender and gender-nonconforming people; the rights of people living with HIV; the use of religious “exemptions” to discriminate against LGBT people; the rights of LGBT young people affected by the school-to-prison pipeline; the rights of low-income people, including in the workplace; the rights of people of color who are LGBT or living with HIV.
