As part of Bartlit Beck’s commitment to fostering and supporting diversity in the legal profession, our firm has established the Bartlit Beck Diversity Fellowship. The inclusion of diverse experiences and viewpoints has long been a key to our success.
The Fellowship will be awarded to third-year law students who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity in the legal profession and have secured a federal judicial clerkship. The six-week term of the Fellowship will take place between the Fellow’s law school graduation and the commencement of the clerkship.
Fellows will receive (1) a six-week paid summer Fellowship with Bartlit Beck, (2) reimbursement for bar examination preparation course expenses, and (3) an additional $30,000 stipend. The Fellowship position will be part time, providing opportunity to study for the bar exam.
Selection as a Fellow does not create any obligation concerning future employment with Bartlit Beck. Applications should be received by November 1. Applications received after November 1 will be considered as space allows.
