The Weil 2L Diversity Fellowship is available to students who are enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school and intend to practice law in a major city of the United States. Eligible students must have successfully completed their first year of a full-time JD program, with an expected graduation date of spring 2014, and may not be the recipient Weil’s 1L Diversity award or a similar scholarship award from another law firm.
Weil will be accepting applications from potential Fellowship candidates from June 1, 2012 through July 15, 2012. An internal selection panel will evaluate all applications, considering such factors as overall commitment to diversity, work experience and academic achievement. Finalists will also be interviewed for the Fellowship after applications are submitted and the winner will be announced in September 2012.
Weil 2L Diversity Fellows will receive a gift of a $10,000 non-renewable scholarship for their third year of law school (2013-2014), which is contingent upon accepting an offer of summer employment at Weil. The Firm expects to award up to two scholarships for the 2013-2014 law school year.
The Weil 2L Diversity Scholars Program application is available to download for students interested in applying for the 2L Fellowship. The application process is open to all law school students who fulfill the fellowship’s eligibility requirements.
