Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship
In response to the growing need for tax legal assistance and in order to foster a greater interest in tax-related public service, the Section of Taxation developed the Public Service Fellowship in 2008. In 2013, the Fellowship was renamed the Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship in honor of the Sections former Executive Director of over 20 years. Christine was a strong proponent of advancing public service efforts in tax law and fostering a fair and equitable tax system. Under her leadership, the Section greatly expanded its commitment to public service and devoted significant resources in furtherance of that goal.
Under the Fellowship, the Section of Taxation provides a two-year unrestricted grant funding the Fellow’s salary and benefits, as well as law school debt assistance, by means of charitable contributions to the Fellow’s Sponsoring Organization. Before applying, applicants identify and secure a position with a public interest, non-profit organization involved in taxation or the administration of tax law. Each year, the Section of Taxation awards up to two Fellowships to recent law school graduates or judicial clerks. Both LLM and JD candidates are eligible to apply.
The Section of Taxation is now accepting applications for the 2016-2018 Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship. Visit the Section website to learn more. Meet the current and past fellows here.
