Law Fellows attend an orientation session and networking reception at the beginning of the summer, where they meet TFAS staff and alumni of the Summer Law Fellowship. Below is a tentative TFAS Summer Law Fellowship schedule, including program dates and a sample weekly schedule to provide a preview of the summer’s general structure.

Program Dates

Fellows should plan to arrive on Sunday, May 26. Fellows planning to live in program housing will be allowed to check into their apartments between 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Orientation and program activities will begin on Tuesday, May 28. No programming will be planned on Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day. Fellows are encouraged to explore the city and enjoy the many Memorial Day observances. Fellows will be required to move out of the apartments on Friday, July 26, by 10:00 AM. Further details on arrival logistics, registration and orientation will be provided as the summer approaches.
