The Stradley Ronon Diversity Fellowship program is designed to celebrate diversity in the legal profession and support the development of exceptional, diverse law students into outstanding Stradley Ronon lawyers. As a Stradley Ronon Diversity Fellow, students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working both at a firm and in-house by splitting their summer between Stradley Ronon and a firm client. In addition to gaining practical experience, fellows receive mentorship and financial support in the form of a $10,000 scholarship.

Our 2020 diversity fellows spent several weeks at Stradley Ronon honing their professional skills through practical training and substantive assignments before going in-house for the remainder of the summer program at firm clients Vanguard and the Investment Company Institute. Earlier this year, Stradley selected its 2021 Diversity Fellow, Zunara Ishtiaq, who will be engaged in a partial secondment with firm client Aberdeen Standard Investments while participating in the Stradley summer program.

Information regarding applications for the 2022 Fellowship will be available on this page in the near future. If you have immediate questions regarding the Fellowship, please contact Kristin Smith, Legal Recruiting Manager, at kristin.smith@stradley.com or Brian Seaman, Chief Diversity Officer, at bseaman@stradley.com.
