Global Justice Fellowship (GJF)

Global Justice Fellowship

The Global Justice Fellowship (GJF) is one of two major summer global programs at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. The GJF supports JD students in pursuing international public interest internships over the summer.

To complement the Law School’s course offerings and clinical opportunities, the GJF provides students with opportunities to gain first-hand experience in promoting and advocating for global justice.

Many students come to law school eager to explore international and comparative human rights and rule of law issues. This program is designed to immerse students in the law and legal culture of another part of the world and to work on the most pressing global issues facing the world today.
