Clifford Chance has partnered with the Georgetown University Law Center to establish the Clifford Chance International Public Interest Summer Fellowship Program.
The Clifford Chance Fellowships are committed to providing outstanding JD students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds with the ability to serve others in the international community.
The first class of Fellows will be chosen this spring.
The fellowships will be offered to 15 first-year Georgetown Law students, selected through a competitive application process, who will undertake unpaid summer internships with international non-governmental and governmental organizations. The program will be overseen by an Advisory Committee, which will be comprised of Law Center administrators and Georgetown faculty, as well as two representatives of Clifford Chance.
In 2006, Clifford Chance became the first law firm to partner with New York University School of Law on its ground-breaking An-Bryce Program, which provides full scholarships to disadvantaged JD students who are the first in their immediate family to pursue a graduate degree. In addition, the firm is supporting an annual faculty research and lecture series at Columbia University Law School on the study of diversity and its implications within the legal community.
