For 35 years Levitt & Quinn Family Law Center has helped to bridge the justice gap in Los Angeles County by providing a blend of free and sliding scale family law and adoption legal services for poor and modest means families.
We work with law students and recent graduates to create fellowship opportunities that maximize their unique skills, interests, and experience to best help us meet the needs of our client community. Levitt & Quinn is committed to language access and recruiting fellows fluent in languages other than English, with Spanish being the most common.
We accept applications for school-based fellowships on an on-going basis until June 30 for fellowships that begin in the fall. Please include with your application information about your school’s program, including key deadlines, compensation, duration, and any specific areas of focus.

Levitt & Quinn Fellowship Project Proposals
Adoption Fellowship Project

Alternative Dispute Resolution Fellowship Project
A pilot program and one of the first of its kind, the Alternative Dispute Resolution Fellowship (“ADR Fellowship”) will focus on education, outreach, and accessibility. The primary goal of the ADR Fellowship is to aid clients and members of the community to achieve family-centered outcomes that maximize cooperation and empowerment.
Fundraising and Development Fellowship Project (non-law grads welcome!)
This Fellow will create a planned giving program through research of best practices both within and outside legal services, as well as develop internal policies, procedures, and external facing materials. The Fellow will work with members of the Board of Directors, program staff, and key partners and supporters to develop and implement the planned giving program.
Guardianship Fellowship Project
The Guardianship Fellow will plan and implement a probate guardianship practice at Levitt & Quinn focusing on parents defending against establishment of a guardianship of their minor child(ren).
Technology Fellowship Project
This fellowship focuses on the intersection between public interest law and technology. This Fellow will conduct research on and develop a sustainable project plan to use technology to deliver high quality, accessible, and culturally competent legal services to poor and low income people throughout Los Angeles County.
