Getches-Wilkinson Center Water Fellows

The Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment at the University of Colorado Law School is seeking two outstanding attorneys to serve as the inaugural Getches-Wilkinson Center Water Fellows.  Fellows will work on the most pressing water law reform issues of the day under the guidance of leaders from the non-profit, government, and private sectors. The intensive two-year program will immerse the fellows in the real world challenges of water law and policy. During the program, the Fellows will be actively engaged in water law reform in the public interest and will hone their leadership, communication, advocacy, and research skills.

Fellows will work with GWC faculty and staff, and with partner organizations on state and tribal negotiations, pending legislation, administrative proposals, ballot initiatives, and policy implementation. Fellows will be expected to attend major meetings, conferences, and hearings; draft media content on emerging issues; publish white papers and law reform recommendations; perhaps offer testimony at hearings and make public addresses; and work on at least one long-term project that develops in-depth expertise in water law. 

The fellowship term is two-years. Salary will be $68,000; fellows will have a travel and training budget. Requirements include J.D. or relevant terminal degree and minimum of three years relevant practical experience since receiving your J.D.  You will also need excellent writing skills and be committed to serving diverse and underrepresented communities.
