The mission of the Janet D. Steiger Fellowship Project ("Steiger Fellowship Project") is to provide law students with the opportunity to work in the consumer protection departments of state and territorial Offices of Attorneys General throughout the United States, as well as consumer protection agencies not affiliated with state attorneys general offices in Connecticut, Georgia and Hawaii.

The Steiger Fellowship Project involves an eight-week paid fellowship that began in 2004 by the ABA Section of Antitrust Law (the "Section"), in cooperation with the National Association of Attorneys General ("NAAG"), as a consumer protection outreach initiative to introduce law students to the rewards of legal careers in public service.

Selected students will serve for a minimum of eight weeks during the summer of 2015 in the consumer protection or consumer affairs offices of locations of participating state and territorial governments. In its first year, the Steiger Fellowship Project placed a total of eight law students. By the end of this summer, the Project will have placed a total of 260 law students in public service positions.
