Do you want to help transform justice across state, local, territorial and tribal courts? Georgetown Law’s Institute for Technology Law & Policy is seeking applicants for an 11-month Judicial Innovation Fellowship (JIF) in which fellows will take the lead on a technical, data or design project aimed at improving a court’s capacity and access to justice.

The deadline to apply is April 7.

As the JIF website explains:

“Our goals are to build capacity in courts, train cross-sector leaders—who can understand the challenges of government and technology — and improve the transparency, equity, and efficiency of justice in America. More than just a job with a competitive salary and benefits, we are creating the flagship opportunity for technology leaders to change the way people access their rights and are served by courts in the United States.”

This is a unique opportunity to play a hands-on role in reshaping the justice system. The fellowships will run from September 2023 to August 2024. They will pay a salary of $85,000 to $100,000 plus benefits and moving expenses.

The JIF website has detailed information, including descriptions of projects, the application questions, a slide deck explaining the fellowship and application process, and an FAQ. There is also the recording of an earlier webinar for potential applicants.
