At Hausfeld, we are proud of our commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout our firm. By valuing different perspectives and experiences, we know that we produce better results for our clients and the communities we serve. To that end, Hausfeld has established a 1L Diversity Fellowship program that provides a unique summer employment opportunity for exceptional first-year law students from historically underrepresented backgrounds in the legal profession. Fellows are awarded a spot in the firm’s summer associate program and a $10,000 scholarship towards their 2L academic year. Fellows are paired with two firm mentors, a partner and an associate, who in addition to the summer associate committee, provide support and structured feedback on work assignments and guidance on law firm culture and social events throughout the summer.
Successful applicants must demonstrate: (1) a record of academic excellence, (2) leadership experience, and (3) community involvement. Applications must include a cover letter or 1-2 page personal statement, resume, law school transcript (if available), and short writing sample. First generation law students are encouraged to apply.
Applications for Hausfeld’s 2022 1L Diversity Fellowship Program will be accepted from December 1, 2021 – January 15, 2022.
