Morgan Lewis is proud to announce our Diversity Fellowship Program (DFP). The DFP provides stipends that are designed to assist Diversity Fellows with law school-related expenses. Our goals are to promote diversity in the legal profession and to attract future leaders who are committed to the importance of diversity. View more information on the firm's diversity efforts.
The DFP awards salaried summer associate positions and $15,000 stipends to highly qualified second-year students who will promote diversity at the firm and within the legal community. Fellowships will be awarded to summer associate program candidates. The stipends will be paid to fellowship recipients who complete the Summer Associate Program and accept offers of full-time associate employment with the firm. Half of the stipend will be paid when the summer associate accepts the offer of associate employment, and half will be paid upon commencement of associate employment.
The DFP is open to any second-year law student. Eligible applicants will (1) have successfully completed one year of law school, (2) have demonstrated academic excellence, (3) have outstanding leadership skills, (4) have an interest in employment with Morgan Lewis, and (5) have a demonstrated interest in promoting diversity at the firm and within the legal profession.
Interested students should sign up for an on-campus interview for a summer associate position. If Morgan Lewis does not recruit at your law school, please contact a local Morgan Lewis office to apply for a summer associate position. A fellowship application must be submitted along with a resume; law school transcript; and brief, detailed personal statement. The application period is currently closed; please check back in 2014 for your chance to apply to the program.
