Kelly IP Announces its First Annual 1L Diversity Fellow Program

Dec 06, 2021

Kelly IP is pleased announce its first annual 1L Diversity Fellow Program. At Kelly IP, a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace is one where all attorneys and staff, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education level, or disability, feel valued and respected. We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and provide equal opportunity for employment and advancement. We respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages and ensure that all voices are valued and heard. We recognize and appreciate that a talented and diverse workforce is a key competitive advantage.

Kelly IP’s 1L Diversity Fellow Program awards one fellowship annually to a first-year law student from a background traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession who wants to explore a career in trademark and copyright law. The 1L Diversity Fellow will spend 6-8 weeks (at the Fellow’s election) as a paid summer associate at Kelly IP. The Fellow will also receive formal mentorship from at least one partner and one associate at Kelly IP during the summer and throughout the following academic school year, and participate in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) 1L Scholars Program.

The 1L Diversity Fellow program is open to all first-year law students from a group historically underrepresented in the legal profession that is currently enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school with demonstrated interest in trademark and copyright law.
