Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships

Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships

Faegre Baker Daniels is committed to increasing diversity in the legal profession. We are pleased to offer Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships in support of this commitment.   

Eligibility

To be eligible for the Faegre Baker Daniels Diversity & Inclusion Fellowship, applicants must be enrolled in a J.D. program at an accredited U.S. law school with an anticipated graduation date of 2016, and be interested in a summer associate position in one of our U.S. offices. In addition, applicants must be committed to contributing meaningfully to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

Summer Clerkship

Fellowship recipients will be summer associates in one of our U.S. offices between their second and third years of law school. Upon conclusion of the summer program, Fellowship recipients are eligible to be considered for an offer of full-time employment as an associate upon graduation from law school.

Financial Award

Fellowship recipients will receive a $10,000 stipend at the conclusion of their summer associate position.

Mentoring

Fellowship recipients will be matched with a mentor, a Faegre Baker Daniels lawyer, at the time the Fellowship is awarded. The mentor will offer guidance to the student and help with his or her integration into the firm and community upon arrival in the summer.
