Internship Program for Law Students
Diversity Fellowship Open to First Year Law Students at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Notre Dame Law School
Bose McKinney & Evans’ internship program is focused on a diversity fellowship to 1L students at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Notre Dame Law School from historically underrepresented backgrounds.
The application process is now open with applications due on February 3, 2020.
Eligibility: Applicants must be enrolled in a Juris Doctor program at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, Indiana University Maurer School of Law or Notre Dame Law School with an anticipated graduation date of 2022, currently have and maintain throughout the fellowship a ranking in the top 25% of the class, and have an interest in a paid summer internship position with the Indianapolis office of Bose McKinney & Evans. Factors such as work experience, extracurricular activities and community service also will be considered in the overall analysis of candidates. Additionally, candidates must be committed to meaningful support of increasing diversity and inclusion efforts in the legal profession.
Summer Internship/Fellowship: This is a potential two-year fellowship to be awarded to one student. The selected fellow will be a paid summer intern with the Indianapolis office of Bose McKinney & Evans between the student’s first and second years of law school. If the fellow is an evening/part-time student, the opportunity may be extended through the summers between the student’s second and third years of law school. The fellow will be considered for an additional year of scholarship and for a paid summer internship upon successful completion of the first summer internship and compliance with class ranking expectations. The fellowship intern is eligible to be considered for full-time employment as an associate at Bose McKinney & Evans upon graduation. However, there is no guarantee of a position.
Fellowship Award: The fellow will receive a $10,000* award to be paid upon selection. Additionally, the fellow is eligible to receive another $10,000* award in the second year of law school upon review of the fellow’s quality of summer work, as evaluated by our Summer Intern and Recruitment Committees. The fellow also must maintain a ranking in the top 25% of the law school class. Should the fellow be extended an offer of full-time employment as an associate of the firm at the conclusion of the second summer internship, an additional $10,000* award will be granted for the final year of law school.
Mentoring: Upon selection and acceptance, the fellow will be paired with a mentor from Bose McKinney & Evans. Additionally, the fellow will be required to participate in a minimum of two additional formal and/or informal firm networking events, as agreed upon by the firm and the fellow. The mentorship and networking sessions are designed to offer supplemental guidance to the fellow and to better assist with integration into the firm upon the start of the summer internship.
Please send your resume, a cover letter, law school transcript, and a writing sample to email@example.com. The writing sample may be from a law school assignment and should demonstrate legal research and writing skills. No phone calls please. We will select candidates for interviews. The application deadline is February 3, 2020.
