LOUISVILLE — The ACLU of Kentucky today announced the creation of a paid, one-year legal fellowship in which it will employ a second attorney on a full-time basis. The Legal Fellow will work under the direct supervision of the organization’s Legal Director and will assist in all phases of the ACLU of Kentucky’s legal program, including representing clients in ongoing and future civil rights litigation in Kentucky’s state and federal courts.

Today’s announcement marks the first time in the ACLU of Kentucky’s 61 year history in which the organization will employ two attorneys, and it represents the organization’s dedication to utilizing litigation as a tool to combat government encroachment on civil rights in the Commonwealth.

In commenting on today’s announcement, ACLU of Kentucky Executive Director Michael Aldridge stated, “The ACLU of Kentucky is pleased to announce the creation of the Legal Fellowship position because it not only represents the organization’s deep and abiding commitment to Kentuckians’ civil liberties, but it will also enhance our ability to respond to a wide array of threats to civil liberties.”

The fellowship is open to a licensed attorney who is either a current member in good standing of the Kentucky Bar Association or is eligible for immediate admission without examination consistent with Kentucky Supreme Court rules. The application process is open until January 6, 2017, with the successful applicant starting in February, 2017. More information, including the full job description is available online here.
