Patrick J. Murphy Fellowship

The Patrick J. Murphy Law and Government Fellowship was established in 2017 by former Pennsylvania Congressman Patrick J. Murphy ‘99. Through a generous gift from Murphy, this fellowship provides students with an opportunity to assist with the leadership of the law school’s Law and Government Institute.

Each Murphy Fellow will spend time during the academic year researching government law issues, representing the institute to the student body, interacting with policymakers, alumni, and other members of the Widener Law Commonwealth community, and also planning institute activities.

Murphy Fellows must have completed at least one year of law school and can be enrolled in the day or evening division. Applications are due each spring for the following academic year's fellowships. The fellows are selected by a committee that reviews the applicants' submitted resumes and personal statements.

During the fellowship, students will also have the opportunity to receive mentoring from Murphy, as well as additional experiential learning experiences in the area of law and government.
