The Weil Legal Innovators Program (WLI) engages incoming law school students in addressing some of the most pressing social and legal challenges in our communities today. Each WLI class is comprised of incoming law school students who plan to attend a J.D. program at one of our law school partners. Innovators defer their first year of law school to work at a partner nonprofit organization for a paid public service fellowship, executing a strategic initiative designed to leverage their passion for justice and commitment to public service, while amplifying the impact of the nonprofits and their important missions.

2022-2023 Nonprofit Partners

Applicants will be able to identify their first and second choice Innovator opportunity at the following 13 leading national and international nonprofit organizations based across the United States:

  • ACLU of Texas
  • Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC)
  • The Aspen Institute
  • Earthwatch
  • Human Rights Watch
  • Innocence Project
  • National Urban League
  • National Women's Law Center
  • Posse Foundation
  • Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) 
  • Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights
  • Tahirih Justice Center
  • Vibrant Emotional Health

Remote work: Note that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many nonprofit partners are currently operating (and may likely continue operating) in a remote or hybrid work capacity. Should you be selected to move forward in the WLI interview process, we will work with you and our nonprofit partners to clarify expectations around where work will take place.
