McAndrews, Held & Malloy, Ltd. Diversity in Patent Law Fellowship Program
Each year, McAndrews offers a $5,000 fellowship and a paid summer clerkship to a qualified first-year law student at an ABA-accredited law school who has a diverse background, possesses a degree in science or engineering, and is committed to pursuing a career in patent law in Chicago.
Applications for the 2014 fellowship will be accepted from December 1, 2014, through January 15, 2015.
As a summer associate, the Diversity Fellow will gain experience in a wide range of intellectual property law and will be eligible to receive an offer to return for a second summer.
