One of the first law school public interest fellowship programs, the Sparer Program has achieved nationwide recognition. Its excellent reputation opens doors for fellows to pursue successful careers in all areas of public interest law.

Since 1985, over four hundred Sparer Public Interest Law Fellows have graduated from Brooklyn Law School. Many Sparer alumni hold leadership positions in public interest organizations and government agencies around the country, including the Urban Justice Center, U.S. Department of Justice, New York City Department of Law, New York State Public Employees Federation, New York State Attorney General’s Office, New York Legal Assistance Group, National Abortion Federation, Community Legal Services in Philadelphia, The Door, Legal Aid Society, Cabrini Green Legal Aid in Chicago, Empire State Pride Agenda, and many community legal service programs and international human rights projects. Other alumni have gone on to teach at law schools around the country, while many of those who work in private practice continue to devote a portion of their time to pro bono work.

Sparer Fellowship alumni continue to be an important part of the Program. They mentor current fellows, speak at monthly Sparer luncheons or at Sparer forums and symposia, and serve as a resource for the broader public interest community within the Law School. They are also crucial links to the public interest community beyond the Law School in terms of jobs and networking.
