George Beck Fellowship
The Administrative Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association funds the George Beck Fellowship to help provide law students with an opportunity to serve as a legal intern/extern with the Office of Administrative Hearings. George Beck Fellows gain substantial legal experience by observing legal proceedings, conducting legal research and writing, interacting with litigants, and participating in case strategy discussions. George Beck Fellows may also earn law school credit for their fellowship experience.
To apply, indicate your interest on your Judicial Internship/Externship Application. Applicants for the George Beck Fellowship are encouraged to submit a letter of recommendation from a law school professor or legal practitioner who is familiar with the applicant’s work in administrative law or another relevant subject matter. Preference will be given to second- and third-year law students, but all interested law students are encouraged to apply. Fellowship applications and letters of recommendation should be mailed to:
MSBA Administrative Law Section
Attn: Beck Fellowship Committee
600 Nicollet Mall, Suite 380
Minneapolis, MN 55402
Upon completion of an internship/externship, George Beck Fellows must provide a short written summary of their experience to the Minnesota State Bar Association Administrative Law Section Council, and other MSBA Section Councils that provide funding for the George Beck Fellowship. Please refer to the Law School Agreement for George Beck Fellowships for complete information.
Application for the George Beck Fellowship is not required to be considered for a judicial internship/externship at the Office of Administrative Hearings.
