Recruitment & Retention of Lawyers Committee

The Committee on Recruitment and Retention of Lawyers sponsors the City Bar’s Diversity Fellowship Program. The goal of the Fellowship Program is to offer law students from under-represented populations a unique summer employment opportunity in outstanding New York City law firms and corporate law departments after their first year of law school. The Committee works throughout the year to successfully develop and administer the Fellowship Program.
