The Waging Justice for Women Fellows

Since 2023, the Clooney Foundation for Justice’s Waging Justice for Women initiative (WJW) and our partner organizations have been offering annual, fully funded fellowships to ten early-career women lawyers in sub-Saharan Africa. Each WJW Fellow spends one year embedded with one of ten leading human rights and legal advocacy organizations in sub-Saharan Africa. To learn more about our WJW fellowships, click here.
