2014 Diversity Fellow Job Posting
Fox Group Legal, Alston & Bird, Greenberg Traurig,
Hogan Lovells, and Jenner & Block

Fox Group Legal ("FGL”), Alston & Bird, Greenberg Traurig, Hogan Lovells, and Jenner & Block are seeking a total of four Fellows for their Summer 2014 Diversity Fellowship Program. Eligible candidates must be currently enrolled as first year students at an accredited law school, with a focus on candidates from Southern California law schools.

During this 10-week program, the Fellows will begin their summer in one of the participating law firms’ summer associate programs and spend the last weeks at FGL. Fellows will be exposed to a variety of work assignments from different practice areas, including intellectual property, employment law and general litigation. 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.

To apply, candidates should submit a single .pdf file titled with the candidate’s name (last name then first name) containing a resume, cover letter, undergraduate transcript, all available law school grades or transcripts, and the contact information for one law school faculty member as a reference. In the cover letter, applicants should describe their experience with and commitment to diversity (including but not limited to diversity in the context of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation and identity, religion and disability), and in particular, describe how their career will enhance diversity in the legal profession. 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.

The deadline to apply is January 19, 2014. Applications should be directed via e-mail to with the subject line "Diversity Fellowship Application.”
