NEW YORK BAR FOUNDATION ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM
NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS FOR CORPORATE COUNSEL FELLOWSHIP
A nonprofit or public interest legal organization will receive
funding to host a law student intern this summer under a fellowship
program of The New York Bar Foundation.
The New York-based organization can apply for a grant of $6,000 to
award a summer fellowship to a first- or second-year law student of a
diverse background. The fellowship is funded with donations to the
Foundation from the Corporate Counsel Section of the New York State Bar
Association and other donors. The student must be enrolled in a law
school in New York State during the 2013 spring semester.
“Fellowships, such as the Corporate Counsel Fellowship, ensure
that students gain real-world legal experience and the legal profession
grows in diversity,” said Bar Foundation President Cristine Cioffi
(Cioffi•Slezak•Wildgrube). “It is a privilege to
host this program.”
“It is our great honor to enter our second year in providing
funding for this worthy endeavor. We hope to continue the success of
helping a selected organization and fellow benefit from this exciting
program,” said David Rothenberg of New York City (Goldman Sachs),
chair of the Corporate Counsel Section.
