Civic Leadership Conference
Date: Saturday, February 18, 2017
Place: Yale's West Campus (buses departing from Phelps Gate at 9am)
The time for citizen power is now. As students seeking to engage meaningfully with our communities, we need to build up our civic toolkits. Especially in the midst of shifts in our nation and political division, it is critical to develop the values, skill sets and systems knowledge to be effective citizens. Many of us want to be more involved in local issues or be more active in fighting for the common good, but we are sometimes at a loss for what to do and how to do it.
The day-long Civic Leadership Conference is hosted primarily for Yale College Students by the Yale College Dean’s Office in partnership with Citizen University, a national nonprofit founded by Eric Liu '90. It is designed to equip individuals with the values and skills every civically-minded leader should possess. The program consists mainly of interactive workshops conducted by active civic leaders in various sectors. Through these, students will be able to take away frameworks for action, whether that is using technology and social media for the common good or building stronger communities. We have also invited representatives from civically-minded New Haven groups, so there will be plenty of opportunities to become more involved in projects going on in our city! This will be a great way to channel the excitement, energy, and learning from the day.

The Liman Summer Fellowship
Deadline: Monday, February 13, 2017
The Arthur Liman Public Interest Program at Yale Law School supports undergraduates and graduate students working in the public interest. Broadly defined, public interest law includes helping those who lack the resources to retain attorneys, as well as engaging in advocacy work, and participating in shaping public policy.
The Liman Summer Fellowship offers students an opportunity to participate in public interest law projects. Summer Fellows have worked on issues such as immigrants’ rights, workers’ rights, prison conditions, educational adequacy, and juvenile justice. Placements can include organizations providing civil or criminal legal services to individuals or to groups, organizations focused on problems of legal and public policy, and law-related media. Summer Fellows have the opportunity to participate in the Liman Public Interest Law Colloquium, an annual event held at Yale Law School that brings together advocates, scholars, and students from across the country for a day-long discussion on public interest topics such as low-wage workers and workfare, criminal justice reform, and organizing both globally and locally. Through their involvement with the Liman Program, Summer Fellows become part of a large network of public interest advocates.
Applicants are required to have a tentative host placement set up at the time they submit their applications. If interested students are having trouble finding a host or do not know where to start, please feel free to contact Anna VanCleave, Director of the Arthur Liman Public Interest Program, with questions at (203) 436-3520. She is happy to meet with students and brainstorm possibilities, and also happy to make introductions between students and potential host organizations where it would be helpful.
