Exciting Fellowship Opportunity in Alaska!

The members reside in 36 villages in a remote area around Bristol Bay, Alaska.

The Fellow will travel to villages with BBNA staff to meet with clients and provide estate planning services. The Fellow will be supervised by Center personnel and will have on-site contact with an Alaska Legal Services attorney. This is a unique opportunity for a recent law school graduate to gain hands-on legal experience in a unique location! BBNA members have special estate planning needs, and the Fellow will undergo training on those special needs, as well as estate planning for native Alaskans. Pay: expense stipend of $34,000.

We will begin accepting applications for this Fellowship on May 1, 2013, with the deadline for applications on August 25, 2013.
