This program is designed to provide a dynamic fellowship experience for a diverse candidate from a Boston-area law school during both the fall and spring semesters. The fellowship is to be completed as a supplement to coursework during one semester of the second year of law school. The program is mutually beneficial to the chosen fellow and to Conn Kavanaugh’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion mission. 

The Fellowship program provides a paid stipend for 10 hours of work per week, over the course of 8-10 weeks during either the fall or spring semester. The Fellow can expect to work closely with attorneys and staff to build a foundation for a career in law and close relationships within the firm. The Fellowship is designed to provide an introduction to client work and hands-on experience working alongside partners at a law firm and to add meaningful work experience to the Fellow’s resume. Since the inauguration of this program in the fall 2021 semester, we have welcomed one fellow each spring and fall semester. We are pleased to report that we have hired our first Fellow to return to the firm in the fall of 2023 as a full-time associate attorney.
