At the firms, the Fellows will also be exposed to corporate transactional matters. The Fellows will be paid a weekly stipend of no less than $1,500 for the 10‐week duration of the Fellowship. The program will advance the selected candidates’ professional development by enabling the formation of collegial and mentoring relationships and allowing the Fellows an early view into work in‐house at an entertainment company and as outside counsel at a major law firm.

Cover letters should be no more than 500 words. The cover letter should also indicate whether the candidate seeks consideration for a position at all or only some of the law firms.
