Diversity Fellowship

Cairncross & Hempelmann Diversity Fellowship Program

CH& is committed to supporting and increasing the diversity represented in our firm as well as the legal community as a whole.  In 2007, we began offering a Diversity Fellowship which includes a paid summer associate position in our firm.  This year, the 1L Diversity Fellowship continues with a $10,000 academic scholarship to be paid directly to the recipient’s law school at the beginning of their second year, after they have completed their summer with the firm.
