The program helps fellows devise a unique plan suited to their individual interests and goals, including how best to take advantage of the program offerings based on those interests. Participation in the program helps to structure the fellows’ time in law school and focus on professional growth and personal leadership development.
Examples of the extracurricular programming offered include: speaker events, professional development workshops focused on developing skills in public speaking and negotiations, and networking opportunities. In addition to on-campus programming, there are opportunities to go offsite on immersive trips to major markets.
The fellows program provides exposure to nontraditional career paths, such as policymaking and nonprofit work for students interested in the public sector and investment banking and consulting for those interested in the private sector. Fellows have the opportunity for access and exposure to leaders and subject matter experts in their area of interest through highly individualized mentor matching with an alumni mentor whose interests align closely with that of the fellow and who can help guide fellows along their trajectory. Fellows have access to information and advice regarding career paths, particularly non-legal ones, through their advisors and mentors as they continue to develop the competencies they have identified and as they pursue long-term goals.
