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. Interested applicants should submit their materials by October 15. Applications received after that date will be considered as circumstances permit.
To apply, please email the following materials to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Law school transcript
- Personal statement of approximately 500-1000 words that describes
your interest in and qualifications for the Fellowship
