Public Interest Fellowship

The fellowship provides a $5,000 stipend for a student who either (a) has secured an otherwise unpaid legal position at any nonprofit organization, government agency, or judicial body, or (b) is working in an unpaid legal internship focusing on the needs of either the South Asian community or any community in need of greater access to justice.

Law Student Mentorship

At the start of every academic year, SABA GB matches local practicing attorney mentors with law students as part of its law student mentorship program. The program is a one-year commitment for both mentors and mentees.

Throughout the year, SABA GB hosts mentorship and networking events, such as mock interviews and career development panels, to provide guidance to law students. In addition to formal events, SABA GB’s mentorship committee encourages mentors and mentees to connect in informal settings. Law students who have participated in the program have commented on their mentors' positive influence in helping them navigate law school and career options after graduation.
