Now Accepting Applications for the 2019-20 Douglass Fellowship Cohort


Applications for the 2019-20 Douglass Fellowship cohort will be accepted until 5 PM EST on Thursday, April 18, 2019.

Inspired by Fredrick Douglass’s commitment to freedom, education, and advocacy, The Human Trafficking Institute provides this opportunity for second- and third-year law students to participate in an eight-month fellowship program focused on developing future leaders in the anti-trafficking movement and providing resources to those currently combatting human trafficking around the globe.

Fellows will serve from September through April each academic year and will be chosen through a competitive process based on academic achievement, leadership potential, research and writing ability, and demonstrated commitment to human rights and anti-trafficking efforts.

The program consists of three components: Research and Writing, Mentorship, and Advocacy. Research projects include working on amicus briefs to the United States Supreme Court or Circuit Courts of Appeal in cases impacting human trafficking law; researching current trends in human trafficking law; assisting in the research and publication of the annual Federal Human Trafficking Report on the current state of human trafficking cases in the United States; analyzing successful modes of human trafficking enforcement; researching methods for measuring prevalence; and analyzing and compiling human trafficking statistics.
