The Higher Education Law Fellowship program is open to third-year law students and recent law school graduates and grants extraordinary access into the legal life of the University of Kansas and the Office of the General Counsel.

Sponsored by Chancellor Doug Girod in collaboration with the University of Kansas’ Office of the General Counsel, the Higher Education Law Fellowship has been established to support and promote career advancement to those interested in legal issues facing Higher Education, including but not limited to health care, employment law, contract review and drafting, regulatory and compliance issues and tort litigation. Office of the General Counsel attorneys represent the University of Kansas in a broad range of legal issues including internal and external investigations, labor and employment, contracts, claims and litigation, regulatory compliance matters, faculty appointments and grievance processes, student conduct issues, and clinical research and health law matters.

The Higher Education Law Fellowship is a salaried, limited-term position which provides a unique and unparalleled opportunity for the beginning attorney to work closely with the General Counsel attorneys to gain the resources and mentorship necessary to prepare them for a successful career in higher education law.
