In order to foster this growing community of lawyers, SELC encourages lawyers of all experience levels who are intend to meet those legal needs by starting new law practices, legal nonprofits, or other projects to apply to become a SELC Legal Fellow if they would benefit from the support the fellowship offers. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide training, mentorship, and other resources to attorneys beginning new law practices, legal nonprofits, and other projects to serve the legal needs of local sustainable economies. The underlying goal of the program is to meet the legal needs of the growing sustainable economy movement.
