Latham's 1L Fellowship Program

The 1L Fellowship Program offers a unique summer employment opportunity for students who have just finished their first year of law school.


Latham & Watkins is pleased to announce its 2018 1L Fellows. 

Our 1L Fellows will spend the first half of the summer in one of our US offices and the second half in-house in the legal department of one of our clients. Each fellow will also be paired with a mentor at the firm. Upon the successful completion of the program, the students will receive an offer to join the firm as a summer associate the following year. They are also eligible to participate in the 2L Diversity Scholars program.

This year, the firm welcomes talented law students from Berkeley, Fordham, Harvard, Loyola, the University of Chicago, the University of San Diego, the University of Virginia, and Yale. Read more.
