VSB Local Government Fellowship Available

Created in 2012, the Virginia State Bar (VSB) Local Government Fellowship seeks to attract promising future attorneys to the practice of local government law in the Commonwealth of Virginia. To this end, the Board of Governors of the VSB Local Government Section will award a $4,000 fellowship to an outstanding first or second-year law student who has committed to working full-time for a minimum of 10 weeks at a Virginia local government attorney’s office during the summer of 2023, or divide the fellowship between two students working full-time for a minimum of 5 weeks each. The Fellow may also have the opportunity to submit an article on a local government topic or an interview for potential publication in the VSB’s quarterly Journal of Local Government Law. Please encourage your summer interns to apply for this fellowship by April 3, 2023. A Fellowship Fact Sheet and application are available here. Questions may be directed to
