Law Grads Secure Prestigious Public Interest Fellowships 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5


Georgetown Law Center’s E. Barrett Prettyman and Stuart Stiller Fellowship Program is designed to combine postgraduate study in criminal justice with training in the practical aspects of indigent criminal defense. Each year, the five Fellows accepted into the program undergo intensive training in criminal law, procedure, evidence, and trial practice and represent clients in criminal cases before District of Columbia courts. Later, Fellows are given the opportunity to supervise law students in Georgetown’s criminal justice clinic. At the end of the two-year program Fellows are awarded Masters of Laws in Advocacy and often go on to work for prominent indigent criminal defense organizations across the country.

Andrew Ferguson L'00
Jordan Barnett L'01

This year Andrew Ferguson L’00, a former clerk to Chief Judge Carolyn Dineen King, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and Jordan Barnett L’01 have been selected to participate in the program. Ferguson spent the summers between law school at the Federal Public Defenders Office in New York and the American Civil Liberties Union in Philadelphia. Barnett worked at the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office and the Southern Center for Human Rights in Atlanta where he pursued death penalty issues.

“The Prettyman/Stiller Fellowship is a wonderful program,” says Barnett. “I feel very lucky to spend the next two years working there. The clinical program at Georgetown will provide a great place to learn the practice of indigent criminal defense.”


Jessica Feierman L’00, a former clerk to the Honorable Warren Ferguson, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, was selected for Georgetown's Street Fellowship. This program enables law graduates with a special interest in women’s rights to work on legal and policy issues affecting women.
