Luis Hernandez Selected for Bose McKinney & Evans’ Diversity Fellowship

Leaders at Bose McKinney & Evans LLP selected Luis Hernandez, a law student at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, for its 2017 Diversity Fellowship. Hernandez will begin his fellowship this summer by serving as an intern.

Bose McKinney & Evans will provide Hernandez a $5,000 scholarship, along with the opportunity for a second summer internship and scholarship in 2018. In addition, one of the firm’s attorneys will mentor Hernandez throughout the fellowship. Hernandez will be eligible for an associate position at Bose McKinney & Evans after graduation from law school and the successful completion of the fellowship.

As a student at Indiana University South Bend, Hernandez majored in political science and philosophy. After graduating in 2012, he became owner and CEO of Winston Housing LLC, a residential property management company. Hernandez began his studies at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 2016, and was an Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity (ICLEO) fellow. He worked as a summer/winter associate at Monterrosa Law Group LLC in South Bend, Indiana.

The Bose McKinney & Evans Diversity Fellowship was first awarded in 2015 with a goal to assist first year law students from historically under represented backgrounds at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law who are committed to meaningful support of increasing diversity and inclusion efforts in the legal profession.

To be considered for the fellowship, the student must be enrolled in a Juris Doctor program at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law and maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average throughout the fellowship.
