Diversity Fellows Program
The Section’s 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.

Three lawyers of color are appointed to funded fellowship positions within the Section for one full 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 first-year participation.

The Section’s 2002–03 Diversity Fellows are Laura V. Farber, George C. Johnson, and Amy Lin Meyerson. Laura is Chair of the Section’s Public Service Committee and a member of the Corporate Sponsor Committee and the Young Lawyers Committee. George is a member of the Diversity Committee and the Technology Committee. Amy is Assistant Editor of the Outreach Committee and Deputy Chair of the Corporate Counsel Committee.
