Diversity Fellows Program Applicants Wanted

The Diversity Fellows Program is designed to promote ethnic diversity within the Section, recruit members of color, and provide leadership development opportunities within the Section for members of color.

The Section’s Diversity Committee and Membership Board identifies and nominates three lawyers of color who will be appointed by the Chair-Elect to funded fellowship positions within the Section, effective during the following bar year. Upon completion of successful active participation in the first scholarship year, these participants will then be appointed to regularly funded positions within the Section the following bar year, giving consideration to the Section’s existing needs and the participants’ preferences based upon the first year of participation. Please visit the Sectiaon website at www.abanet.org/genpractice for application materials.
