MORRIS COUNTY BAR FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIPS
The Justice Robert L. Clifford Fellowship was established in 1996 by the Morris County Bar Foundation to honor retired New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Robert L. Clifford. The Justice Stewart G. Pollock Fellowship was established in 2004 to honor retired New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Stewart G. Pollock. Each fellowship program provides an opportunity for a minority law school student to participate in the summer clerk program in each of two Morris County law firms for a total period of ten weeks during the summer months. The Fellows are mentored by practicing attorneys and given exposure to all areas of the practice of law. The Fellows receive $5000 for the ten week period; half of which is paid by the participating firms and half of which is paid by the Morris County Bar Foundation.
Fellowship information is available at the Morris County Bar Foundation office (973) 267-6089 or through the financial aid offices at Seton Hall University School of Law (Justice Robert L. Clifford Fellowship) and at New York University School of Law (Justice Stewart G. Pollock Fellowship) and Rutgers University School of Law (Justice Stewart G. Pollock Fellowship).
