Since its inception in 2015, CIC has hired talented student fellows to conduct research on parental incarceration. These fellows guide the work of CIC and have provided some of our best ideas. Many come back and extend their work with us. Others pursue careers involving social justice or the criminal legal system. Our student fellow program not only builds community within CIC, it benefits the wider community as well.
The University of California, Irvine (UCI) has a robust pro bono program that pairs law students with public interest organizations such as CIC. Our current UCI fellows will be exploring laws and community programs that create alternatives to parental incarceration in the US.
