Our commitment to a diverse workplace begins with the recruitment of women and minority law clerks, lateral attorneys, and 3L law school students. We present informative programs about legal opportunities at Patterson Belknap and in the profession more broadly, and engage with interested law school students who are thinking about working in a law firm following a judicial clerkship. We also encourage applications from lateral associates of color and other diverse backgrounds.

As a part of our recruiting efforts, we constantly seek candidates who not only distinguish themselves through their accomplishments, but who have interesting life and work experiences. We welcome you to take the time to ask questions and to get to know us. At Patterson Belknap, we make every effort to retain and promote people who will contribute their myriad talents and backgrounds to create a successful firm of which we can be proud.

  • The Fellow will be invited to sit on the Firm’s Diversity Committee for a term beginning when new committee memberships are announced

If you are interested in applying for the Diversity Fellowship, please send a cover letter indicating your interest in applying along with a resume and law school transcript to Robin Klum, Director of Professional Development and Legal Recruiting. Our clerk recruiting season will begin January 1.
