The Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas
Grants/Internships

The Litigation Section is organized to promote the ends of justice through education and non-profit activities and services which improve the administration of our justice system, which advance public education and understanding of our judicial system, and which are sensitive to the needs of the public as well as the legal profession.

The Litigation Section awards money to support both grants and internships. This application can be used to apply for either a grant or an internship, or both.

The grant program awards varying amounts to promote educational and charitable activities that improve the administration of our justice system, advance public education and understanding of the judicial system, and are sensitive to the needs of the public and the legal profession. The Litigation Section Grant Program seeks to support and promote programs which improve and support the Texas justice system through research, services, publications, institutes, forums and public education.

The internship program awards stipends of $4,000 each to qualifying legal aid, pro bono, or other non-profit legal services programs to sponsor law students in summer litigation internships. Award recipients select and hire their choice of intern and design their own internship curriculum. These internships allow students the opportunity to work with staff attorneys full-time for ten weeks, providing direct legal services to low-income clients and offering invaluable real-life experience for each law student.

2016 - 2017 Grant/Internship Program:

The application period for both internships and grants closed on February 13, 2017.  Recipients will be announced March 3, 2017.
