Palo Alto – December 1, 2015 – Cooley is now accepting applications for its 2016 Diversity Fellowship program. First-year law students who demonstrate a commitment to promoting diversity in their communities, alongside academic and personal achievement, demonstrated leadership ability, and community involvement are encouraged to apply.
Award recipients will receive a paid 1L summer associate position and an award of up to $30,000 to assist with law school tuition. Award recipients will be announced in early 2016.
"Increasing our diversity is a key priority for Cooley, and supporting students who have demonstrated an active commitment to diversity is just one of the ways we are working toward that goal," said DeAnna Allen, chair of Cooley's diversity committee.
To be considered for a Diversity Fellowship award, applicants must be enrolled full-time in an ABA-accredited law school with anticipated graduation in 2018 at the time of application, and must not be the recipient of a paid diversity award from another law firm between January 1, 2016, and August 31, 2016. Applicants must be able to participate in and complete Cooley's 2016 Summer Associate Program. Applications must be received by January 4, 2016. Selected applicants will be contacted on a rolling basis to arrange for personal interviews.
