FAQs

  • Do I need to have been admitted to law school in order to apply to the SEO Law Fellowship?

    No, but you should be applying to law schools at the same time you apply to the Fellowship. Fellows need to provide proof of enrollment prior to acceptance into the Fellowship.

  • I don’t plan to enroll in law school by next fall. Can I still participate in the SEO Law Fellowship program?

    Only candidates who are starting law school in the fall immediately after their Fellowship summer are eligible for internships with our law partners.

  • How do I submit my law school admission documents?

    You only need to submit your law school enrollment form once you have selected your school (proof of your seat deposit). Please select “Law School Information” from the menu after logging into the online application and upload it there.

  • When should I expect to interview with the SEO Law Fellowship team?

    Interviews will occur in March and April. SEO Law will contact you if you’re selected for an interview to schedule a mutually convenient time to interview via Zoom. Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, this is subject to change.
