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 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.
To apply, please email the following materials to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Law school transcript
- Personal statement of approximately 500-1,000 words that describes your interest in and qualifications for the Fellowship
