Attention 1Ls: Goodwin Public Interest Fellowships for Law Students of Color 

Proctor_FellowshipApplications due March 1, 2013.

For the past seven years, the law firm Goodwin Proctor has invested in a diverse legal community by offering offered fellowships to high-achieving law students of color.  Our fellowship program offers awards of $7,500 to students of color who work in public interest positions the summer after their first year of law school.  This program allows us to connect with a wide array of talented students early in their legal careers who are committed to giving back to their communities.

In addition to the monetary fellowship award, selected fellows are guaranteed a “straight-to-callback” interview with the Goodwin Procter office of their choice in the fall interviewing season during their second year of law school.  Fellows will also be invited to participate in some of our summer associate program events during their summer at the public interest organization.  Additional information on the Fellowships (including how to apply) can be found here.
