As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, we are proud to sponsor the Kirkland & Ellis 2L Diversity Fellowship Program. Since 2004, Kirkland has sponsored 239 Fellows with grants totaling approximately $5 million. In 2020, each Diversity Fellowship recipient received a $25,000* stipend. Fellowship applicants should submit a personal statement addressing the individual’s interest in Kirkland and the ways in which the candidate has promoted and will continue to promote diversity in the legal community. Applicants must also apply to and receive an offer to join the summer program at one of the Firm's offices.
The 2L Diversity Fellowship Program application will be available in fall 2020.
*$25,000 less all required income and payroll taxes.
