Keith Wetmore 1L Fellowship for Excellence, Diversity, and Inclusion

At Morrison & Foerster, we work to ensure that there are no barriers to serving clients at the highest level, or to creating opportunities for our lawyers and staff. The firm has long viewed diversity and inclusion as critical to achieving success for both our clients and ourselves. As a result, we continually seek ways not only to attract talented attorneys but also to ensure that they are supported, engaged, and given the tools necessary to be successful. The Wetmore 1L Diversity Fellowship (formerly called the 1L Diversity Fellowship Program) is designed to help us hire exceptional law students who promote diversity within our firm and throughout the entire legal profession, while providing the training, mentorship, and exposure necessary for their professional development and engagement. The Wetmore 1L Diversity Fellowship is just one of the many ways Morrison & Foerster actualizes its commitment to removing barriers and creating opportunities for talented individuals from the most underrepresented groups in the legal industry.

Morrison & Foerster will be awarding fellowships to highly motivated first-year law students who are members of a group underrepresented in the legal industry.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis between December 1, 2017 and January 12, 2018.

Two-Summer Patent Program

Our Two-Summer Patent Program has two tracks: Patent Strategy & Prosecution and Patent Litigation.

Morrison & Foerster’s IP Group is among the best in the nation.  Our patent litigators have litigated, tried and won patent cases in key jurisdictions throughout the U.S., and have managed patent litigation cases in courtrooms around the globe. Our world-class patent prosecutors have developed and implemented IP strategies and obtained patents for many of the most innovative technology and life sciences companies, such as DreamWorks Animation, Genentech and the University of California. Our clients expect the best.

To be the best, you must be trained by the best, and our Two-Summer Patent Program was created to develop you into the next successful MoFo IP attorney. We will immerse you in our Patent Prosecution Group or Patent Litigation Group over two full summers, guide you in your professional development and pay for you to take the USPTO exam. You will also attend our unique Patent Boot Camp training program, and be mentored by our leading IP partners.  We invite you to join the best and develop the diverse set of skills needed to launch your career in patent law.

Applications will be accepted between December 1, 2017, and February 1, 2018.

Applicants should have a serious interest in living and working in Japan.

Applications will be accepted between December 1, 2017, and February 1, 2018.
