2020 1L Fellowship Program and Diversity Leadership Academy

November 18, 2019
Applications now open for these signature recruiting initiatives.

Latham’s 1L Fellowship Program offers a unique summer employment opportunity for students who have just finished their first year of law school to spend about half their summer in one of our US offices and the remaining half in-house in the legal department of one of our clients. 1L Fellows will also be invited to attend our annual Diversity Leadership Academy in late March 2020 and will be provided with other unique training and mentoring opportunities for the duration of their time in law school. 

Successful participants in the program will be invited to return to the firm, for a minimum of eight weeks, the following summer. Upon acceptance of the offer to return as a 2021 summer associate, participants will also be considered for a US$25,000 scholarship through our 2L Diversity Scholars Program.

Our Academy brings together Latham lawyers from around the globe and talented first-year law students who share a commitment to diversity, with a focus on developing and empowering future leaders of the legal profession. This firm-sponsored professional development and training program provides students with the information and skills needed to successfully navigate the law firm interview and hiring process and transition from law student to practicing attorney.
