City Bar Diversity Fellowship Program
Administered by the Committee on Recruitment and Retention of Lawyers, this program provides summer clerkships for first-year students to increase diversity in law firms and corporate law departments. The New York City Bar Diversity Fellowship Program is available to all underrepresented populations in the field of law. The goal of the Fellowship Program is to offer first-year students from underrepresented populations a unique summer employment opportunity in outstanding law firms and corporate law departments. The Committee accordingly invites eleven New York City area law schools to participate in the Fellowship Program. Fellowship program page can be seen here.
