Law Library Fellowship For JDs Seeking Library Degrees

Are you a law school graduate interested in obtaining a library degree?

The University of Arizona School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS) and the Cracchiolo Law Library of the James E. Rogers College of Law offer a two-year fellowship in law librarianship for lawyers seeking to become law librarians. The successful applicant will work 20 hours per week in the Law Library while pursuing an M.A. in Information Resources and Library Science. The salary is $12,000 per fiscal (twelve-month) year (based on an annual salary of $24,000 prorated at .50 FTE/20 hours per week). Benefits and tuition reduction are included. (In the current fiscal year the fellowship recipient would pay minimum tuition and surcharges up to about $200 per semester and have the remaining tuition and other fees waived).
For further information and to apply see the University of Arizona's job posting.
This fellowship is the best of both worlds. You get quality hands-on experience in a law library with financial incentives, and you can also focus on your studies with a 20-hour workweek. 

Any JDs interested in library science and law librarianship should seriously consider this. And if you're not sure, check out a post on what law librarians do.
