The Office of the Solicitor General needs help.  Solicitor General Matt Sawchak and his dream team represent the State of North Carolina in our state and federal appellate courts.  The Office recently announced the creation of a fellowship opportunity, with applications due by July 1, 2017.

The fellow will draft, research, and comment on appellate briefs, as well as help with oral-argument preparation.  Prior clerkship experience is strongly preferred.  Readers wrapping up a clerkship this summer might be well-suited to the job.  A full listing of the job description can be found here.

The fellowship reminds me of the Bristow Fellowships, which are prestigious one-year posts with the federal Office of the Solicitor General.

In any event, I have no doubt that this announcement presents a fantastic opportunity to work on fascinating cases with excellent appellate lawyers.  Please help me disseminate the announcement broadly.
