The program, which offers fellowships to diverse first year law students, is a key component of our ongoing firm initiative to recruit, retain, and advance attorneys who will contribute to the diversity of our practice and of the legal profession.

Our 1L Diversity Fellowship Program is comprised of four components: mentoring, a $5,000 scholarship, a paid summer associate position in the domestic office of the student's choice, and participation in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity 1L Scholars Program.

Eligibility
Candidates must be in good standing as a first-year law student at an ABA accredited law school; demonstrate a record of academic and professional achievement; contribute meaningfully to the diversity of the firm and legal community; and have a sincere interest in Fish & Richardson's practice.
