The Weil Legal Innovators Program:
The Weil Legal Innovators Program engages incoming law school students in addressing some of the most pressing social and legal challenges in our communities today.
Legal Innovators is comprised of a cohort of 10 incoming law school students who plan to attend one of our WLI Law School Partners [Columbia, Duke, Georgetown, NYU & Penn Law Schools]. Innovators defer their first year of law school to work at one of WLI's sponsoring nonprofit organizations, executing a strategic initiative designed to leverage their business acumen and commitment to public service, while amplifying the impact of the sponsoring nonprofit.
What do Innovators receive for their participation?
- $50,000 salary plus health benefits
- $10,000 law school scholarship
- Ongoing engagement with Weil, including a Weil Partner Mentor
- Opportunity to interview for the Weil Summer Associate program
Nonprofit partners sponsoring Innovators receive $40,000.
