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 well over 275 Fellows with grants totaling approximately $6 million. In addition to a $50,000* stipend, our 2L Diversity Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for students to work alongside some of the top lawyers in the world, gain hands-on experience and mentoring, develop leadership skills, interact with Firm clients and make enduring connections with peers.
Fellowship applicants should submit a personal statement explaining the individual’s interests and goals in joining Kirkland. Applicants must also apply to and receive an offer to join the summer program at one of the Firm's offices. Submit an application here.
