The University of Miami School of Law Legal Corps, an award-winning, postgraduate fellowship program, places recent law graduates in public sector organizations. Economic conditions have decreased funding for public sector agencies while the demand for legal services has dramatically increased. In response, Legal Corps seeks to help fill the gaps at understaffed public agencies by providing them with prepared, skilled, and diverse attorneys.
