To better prepare prelaw students for a potential career in law through real-world, hands-on legal education.
Our goal from Day 1 has always been to prepare the student interested in law to succeed.
Law School is a significant invest of both time and financial resources. Therefore, we believe it is prudent to understand fully beforehand if Law School is right for you, and what type of law you would want to study. What's more, legal internships for non-law school students are incredibly difficult to find, thereby necessitating some way to experientially discern the legal vocation.
Universities do a wonderful job of providing a foundational legal/governmental education. Our role is to pick up where they leave off: to inculcate in our students the real-world insights, perspectives, and experience they need to transition smoothly and effectively into other internships and the full-time professional world.
Currently, the Lex Fellowship operates exclusively in Madrid, Spain. As we continue to perfect the Fellowship, we will soon expand into other countries around the globe, as well as deepen and broaden the partnerships we maintain.
The Lex Fellowship will, within the next three years, operate around the world, providing to hundreds of students a year the chance to learn something real, something meaningful, and something lasting.
We are immensely proud of the distance we've gone thus far, and eagerly look forward to the future.
