Cullen and Dykman is proud to announce its Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program as part of the firm’s ongoing initiative to attract and advance skilled attorneys from all backgrounds. Already recognized as a “Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys” by Law360, as well as a top ten “Ceiling Smasher,” Cullen and Dykman is committed to fostering programs that empower and prepare the next generation of diverse leaders at the firm.

The Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program will be awarded annually to one first year law student who demonstrates a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and/or community. In addition to a paid summer fellowship, the Fellow will have the opportunity to return the following year as part of the firm’s Summer Associate Program and will receive an award of up to $10,000. During the program, the Fellow will have the opportunity to experience the firm’s various practice areas while interacting with many different partners and associates.

“Our Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program is yet another example of our commitment to fairness and opportunity for all in the legal community we serve,” said Christopher H. Palmer, Managing Partner of Cullen and Dykman. “Focusing on the diversity of our team makes us a better law firm, as it brings enhanced and varied perspectives to our practice and our clients.”

Candidates for the summer of 2020 must be enrolled in good standing in a JD program at an ABA-accredited law school in the United States with an expected graduation date of Spring 2022. Applications will be accepted through February 1, 2020. If emailing your application, include the following subject line: [YOUR NAME]: 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program.

Candidates should send their resume, law school transcript, and legal writing sample along with a brief personal statement (500 words) describing the applicant’s interest in Cullen and Dykman, academic achievements, and demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and/or community to Adele Mauro, Human Resources Manager, amauro@cullenanddykman.com.
