The Skadden Foundation this week unveiled its latest crop of public-interest fellows, which includes the first-ever fellow out of the University of Kansas School of Law.

Third-year Kansas law student Ellen Bertels is among the 29 recipients of the prestigious and highly competitive fellowship, which sends recent law graduates into public-interest law positions for two years and helps them establish their careers. (The Skadden Foundation added one fellowship this year as the result of more funding from the Joseph H. Flom Foundation.) The fellowships typically go to students at top-ranked law schools, though students at other schools often snag a few spots. In addition to Kansas, the City University of New York School of Law has one 2021 fellow, while Northeastern University School of Law made a particularly strong showing with three upcoming fellows. The remaining 24 fellowships went to students from law schools ranked among the top 25 by U.S. News & World Report.
