Texas Law Fellowships

Texas Law Fellowships

Funding public interest at The University of Texas School of Law since 1988
About

Texas Law Fellowships (TLF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that sponsors public interest fellowships for students at the University of Texas School of Law.  Every year since 1988, TLF has raised money from the UT community, from Austin businesses, and from the legal field to fund public-interest fellowships for UT law students.

Fellowships

Each year, TLF awards $4,000 to 1L and 2L students who will spend their summers working for at least 400 hours (10 weeks) at a qualified public interest organization. Two-thirds of the fellowships are awarded based on donors’ votes during the Spring Pledge Drive, and the remaining third are awarded based on a holistic review of applications.

Events

Texas Law Fellowships (TLF) hosts several events during the year that help fund our fellowships:
