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.
For more information on the Murphy Fellowship, please contact Professor Robert F. Teplitz at [email protected].
