Division of Appeals and Opinions​ ​Appellate Litigation Fellowship, NYS Office of the Attorney General ​

Posted: 03/07/18 | SHARE:


The New York State Office of the Attorney General's Division of Appeals and Opinions is offering a two (2) year fellowship in government appellate litigation in its New York City Office. The Appellate Litigation Fellowship (Fellowship) is a compensated, full-time position for a college graduate who is considering whether to pursue a career in law or public affairs. A commitment through June 2020 is required. One (1) Fellowship is available.

The Division of Appeals and Opinions handles appeals by and against the State of New York in all state and federal appellate courts. Cases cover a wide range of issues, including constitutional and statutory public-law issues, employment, civil rights, torts, and agency decision making. We are seeking a bright, dynamic, hard-working, and motivated individual committed to public service. The selected Fellow will work closely with attorneys to prepare court documents and appellate records; finalize briefs, including highly detailed proofreading and cite-checking; organize case files; and provide relevant legal and office support. A Fellow may also work on special projects for the Division and have the opportunity to draft legal documents.


Applicants must have a BA or BS degree prior to start date. Excellent oral and written communication skills, hyper-attention to detail, organizational skills, and the ability to handle multiple tasks under pressure are also required. Experience in a legal setting is a plus but not required, as the Fellow will receive extensive training. This Fellowship is also open to law school students with at least two (2) full years remaining in an evening law school program.
