This fellowship was posted a long time ago, but it's still showing up in search results. Why?

Post-graduate fellowships never expire. PSJD allows these jobs to remain active so law students and lawyers can work on these competitive and time-consuming applications year-round. We suggest taking note of previous deadlines to prepare for the upcoming year's application cycle.
