Considerations Before you read further…
1. The IFAP fellowship is part-time so it will fit in well with your summer internship or classes. It probably not the only thing you want to do this summer.
2. You do not need to be in Seattle to do the fellowship but you will be calling Seattle Area attorneys so being in the same timezone is helpful.
3. The fellowship is a GREAT opportunity to network with attorneys in the area.
