About the Program
The ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Fellowship Program seeks candidates with a demonstrable interest in the dispute resolution field, and a commitment to taking increasing leadership roles and responsibilities within the Section. The program is designed to provide Fellows with opportunities to gain experience with the Section and help them advance their careers in the dispute resolution field.
Fellows work with a Section committee of their interest for one term with the option to continue into a second term. There is a maximum term limit of two terms. Fellows are expected to remain active with the Section long-term and be the next generation of Section leadership.

The Fellows term will be from January 1 to August 31 each year. Fellows are asked to commit to at least four hours per month to the program.
Each year, the Fellowship application will contain a list of committees who are seeking a Fellow and a description of what project(s) they would like their Fellow to complete. Fellows indicate in their application their first, second, and third choice committees to be assigned to.
