What is the Douglass Fellowship?
Inspired by Frederick Douglass’s commitment to freedom, education, and advocacy, the Human Trafficking Institute (Institute) provides an opportunity for law students chosen through a competitive process to participate in a nine-month fellowship program focused on developing future leaders in the anti-human trafficking movement and providing resources to those currently combatting human trafficking around the globe.
