Fish & Richardson is pleased to launch its annual 1L Diversity Fellowship Program awarding fellowships to diverse first-year law students. The program is a key component of the firm’s ongoing initiative to recruit, retain, and advance attorneys who will contribute to the diversity of the firm’s practice and the legal profession. Over 80% of our Fellowship recipients have received offers to join the firm as an associate following law school graduation.
The Fish & Richardson 1L Diversity Fellowship Program is comprised of four components:
• A paid summer associate position in one of Fish & Richardson’s domestic offices in the summer of 2019;
• Mentoring throughout the academic year by members of the firm;
• Participation in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) 1L Scholars Program; and
• Up to a $30,000 award – Fish will award $5,000 to all 1L Diversity Fellowship recipients upon completion of their 1L
summer clerkship with the firm; $10,000 to those returning as a 2L summer associate at Fish for the full 10 weeks of
the summer program; and $15,000 to those who join the firm as an associate after law school graduation.
Applications for this fellowship are available on Symplicity (search Job # 18210) and are due on January 4, 2019.
