Fish & Richardson is pleased to announce its 1L Diversity Fellowship Program for 2022. 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: a paid summer associate position in one of Fish & Richardson’s domestic offices; mentoring by members of the firm; participation in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity 1L Scholars Program; and up to a $30,000 award.

Eligibility for the Fellowship must include being a member of a racial/ethnic group that has been historically underrepresented in the legal profession, or identifying as a person with disabilities, openly LGBTQ, and/or a military veteran.
