Providing Access to Holistic Experience in Litigation (PAHEL) Fellowship is an attempt to encourage first-generation law graduates from marginalized sections of society to pursue a career in litigation. Through our experience in the field of law, have observed that there is a lack of support either culturally, socially, economically or intersectionality of all the aforementioned categories. Thus, we felt that there is a need to address this gap and bring more people from these communities into the field.
Providing opportunities for first-generation law graduates from marginalized communities to pursue a career in litigation can help to promote diversity and inclusivity within the legal profession. By addressing the lack of support and representation for individuals from these communities, the PAHEL Fellowship can help to create a more level playing field and ensure that the legal system is accessible to everyone.
In addition to promoting diversity and inclusivity, the PAHEL Fellowship can also help to provide valuable experience and opportunities for aspiring litigators. By connecting fellows with mentors and providing training and support, the program can help to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the field of litigation.
The PAHEL Fellowship has the potential to make a real difference in the lives of first-generation law graduates from marginalized communities, and to promote positive change within the legal profession as a whole.
