Consumer protection fellowship for law students

The deadline for the ABA Section of Antitrust Law’s Janet Steiger Fellowship Program has been extended to Friday, February 5th. Steiger Fellows receive a $6,000 stipend for summer internships in the offices of 36 State Attorneys General where they’ll work primarily on consumer protection issues – debt collection, technology, privacy, false advertising, consumer credit, etc. Students may apply in their home states or with AGs’ offices from Vermont to Honolulu and everywhere in between. There’s even the possibility for a need-based housing or travel allowance. The Steiger Fellowship is also open to 1Ls, some of whom may not be thinking about summer employment yet. The application process is simple and it’s a great foot in the door.
