Center for Global Justice Fellowships

Recent Regent Law graduates may apply for a Center for Global Justice human rights fellowship, which provides our graduates with a full year of funding to work for a human rights organization. Created in 2017, this program provides new graduates with invaluable legal experience doing work on behalf of the poor and oppressed.

Chelsea and Pam

The first fellows, Chelsea Mack (L) and Pam Dodge (R), former Center for Global Justice Law Clerks and interns, both work in Uganda. Pam started her fellowship with the International Justice Mission in August 2017. Pam is assisting IJM in its work to protect widows from having their property stolen, protecting women from domestic violence, and building a just and fair legal system so that the rights of all people are protected.

Chelsea began her fellowship in September 2017 with the Uganda Directorate of Public Prosecutions (the equivalent of our Attorney General). Chelsea is assisting the DPP in prosecuting cases of child sacrifice, thinking about how to create a juvenile division, and reviewing the relatively new plea bargaining initiative, which Prof. Jim Gash helped to implement. The plea bargaining initiative has been directly responsible for ensuring that children do not languish in prison beyond the terms of their sentences. Chelsea will review the initiative to ensure it is running effectively and make recommendations on how to improve it.

The Center is very excited to see the fruit of this program. With these fellows, we will now be providing year-round support to IJM and the Uganda DPP through Student Staff projects, summer internships, and now year-long fellowships. Please pray for our students and consider giving to support their great work!
