1L Diversity Fellowship
Our firm is committed to the growth and development of legal communities that more accurately reflect the rich diversity of our communities at large. Since 1991 we have been pleased to offer student fellowships to first year law students from a diversity of backgrounds. The fellowships provide students a $7,500 academic scholarship and a paid summer associate position immediately following the completion of their first year.
The 2013 1L application process has closed. You may submit your application for a 2014 Fellowship here starting December 1st, 2013.
Each year 1L Diversity Student Fellows are selected on the basis of the following criteria:
Our definition of diversity is broad and past finalists and recipients have included members of racial, ethnic, disabled and sexual orientation minority groups. While applicants need not disclose their financial circumstances, a demonstrated need for financial assistance may be taken into consideration.
- The individual must be a first-year law student in good standing pursuing a J.D. degree at an ABA-accredited law school.
- The individual must possess an academic record, interest and capacity that demonstrate great promise for a successful career during the remainder of law school and in the legal profession.
- The individual must contribute meaningfully to the diversity of the law school student body and, upon entering the legal profession, the legal community.
