The Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee invites applicants for the Chief Justice Edward F. Hennessey Fellowship. This summer Fellowship honors the former Chief Justice and perpetuates the memory of his many contributions to protect the due process rights of all citizens, including those involved with the mental health system.
Law school students in good standing, particularly those with a demonstrated commitment to public interest law and mental health advocacy, are encouraged to apply to serve as an Edward F. Hennessey Fellow. The fellow will receive a stipend of $6,000 to work for ten weeks during the summer with MHLAC or another Massachusetts legal service program to advance the rights of persons with mental illness and their families.
For more information, please see the call for applications.
