This is the 2024 fellowship description for this mentor organization. This position has been filled.

Levy Ratner has successfully represented unions and working people for more than 50 years. Many of the firm's 18 active lawyers have national reputations in the field of labor and employment law and extensive expertise handling complex, precedent-setting cases.

Our other institutional clients are international and local unions representing workers in a wide variety of industries, employee benefit funds, and progressive community and political organizations. We also represent and advise individual employees and groups of employees.

Our Fellow will also have opportunities to observe and assist with collective bargaining and arbitrations, and possibly administrative or court proceedings.

Essential qualifications: excellent research and writing skills, labor law coursework, and an ability to work under short deadlines.

BIPOC students are strongly encouraged to apply and will have the opportunity to attend AFL-CIO’s Diversity, Outreach, Opportunities and Recruitment (DOOR) Law Clerk Networking Conference in D.C.
