Comments

Fox Rothschild celebrates diversity in the workplace. Our attorneys and staff value the opportunity to work with people of diverse backgrounds, cultures and viewpoints. A diverse workplace makes us able to better understand our clients and enhances our workplace experience at the firm.

Fox Rothschild launched our 1L Diversity Fellowship Program for the Summer of 2020. The program is open to first-year law students from historically underrepresented groups in the legal profession. The Fox Fellowships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, strong interpersonal skills, entreprenuerial ambition, and a commitment to diversity and inclusion efforts in the legal commuinty.

In addition, for summer 2020, we recruited first-year law students through the following diversity programs to also join our summer associate program: Chester County Bar Association’s 1L Diversity Summer Program, Philadelphia Diversity Law Group Fellows Program, and the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice Program.
