Presidential Management Fellows Program to be Discussed at College of Law by 2007 DU JD and LLM Graduate Theresa Corless on Sept. 28

Theresa I. Corless, a University of Denver Sturm College of Law JD and LLM graduate, will speak at the college of law at noon on Sept. 28 noon about the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) program.

Ms. Corless, environmental coordinater for special projects at the Rio Grande National Forest/San Luis Valley Public Lands Center, earned her LLM from the Environmental and Natural Resource Law program at the college of law. Following completion of her studies at DU, Ms. Corless earned a prestigious spot as a Presidential Management Fellow.

The program is a competitive two-year government leadership fellowship. Although due to federal regulation there are no "attorney" positions in the PMF, many attorneys and those with legal backgrounds find relevant positions in the program. At the end of the two years, fellows are placed in a permanent position.

Students are eligible in the year in which they receive a graduate degree. The application period is Oct. 1-15. More information about applying can be found by clicking here.
