Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt, LLP

Seattle, WA

This is the 2020 fellowship description for this mentor organization.

Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt is the Pacific Northwest's premiere union-side labor and employment law firm, with roots stretching back over 100 years. We provide top-quality, aggressive, ethical representation to workers and the unions that represent them.

We are the largest union-side labor law firm in the Pacific Northwest. Born out of the nation's labor struggles of the early 20th century, we now represent over 100 local and international unions, as well as state and regional trade councils, spanning numerous industries including pilots, flight attendants, machinists, nurses, teamsters, teachers, service employees, laborers, longshore workers, building trades, hospitality workers, fire fighters, public sector employees, and more. We also fight to protect the civil rights of individual employees to fair, discrimination-free, harassment-free workplaces and fair wages.

The Peggy Browning Fellow will be involved in the full range of the firm's practice. We aim to provide plenty of research and writing opportunities, as well as opportunities to attend hearings and argument, as available. We are fully and actively networked with the labor movement in Seattle and will include the fellow in events and programming that arise during the summer.

In keeping with our commitment to workplace justice, we wish to ensure that the next generation of advocates is mentored by committeed, compassionate leaders now. We believe the Peggy Browning Fellowship is uniqely well matched to our brand of dedication. In addition to honing practical law skills, we do our best to provide opportunities for fellows to interact with the workers we serve.

Students at this firm typically work 40 hours/week. The stipend for this fellowship will be $825/week. We provide medical, vision, and dental benefits for the Fellow and his/her dependents. The dental starts on the first day of the second month of employment and continues through the end of the employment. Medical starts the first day of the third month of employment.

In addition to the basic application requirements (cover letter, application form, essays, resume), applicants for this fellowship must also include a brief writing sample.
