Journalists who cover the law may apply for Loyola Law School’s four-day Civil Justice Fellowship Program

The Civil Justice Program at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles will host its 10th-annual Journalist Law School from Wednesday, May 27 through Saturday, May 30, 2015 on its Frank Gehry-designed campus in downtown Los Angeles. 

There is no cost to journalists to attend the Fellowship program. Instruction, lodging and most meals are included. The Journalist Law School will also cover half of travel expenses up to $300. Fellows will be housed at the nearby Hilton Checkers Los Angeles.  

The Fellowship program condenses core law-school subjects and break-out topics into a long weekend filled with courses taught by Loyola Law School faculty, practicing attorneys and judges. Journalists with at least three years of experience who cover the law in some fashion are encouraged to apply. Journalist fellows, who are competitively selected, receive a certificate of completion at the end of the four-day program. JLS alumni include almost 350 reporters, editors and producers from a wide range of local, national and international news organizations.

The application deadline is Monday, Feb. 16. The application and details are available at www.journalistlawschool.org.
