Welcome to our newest class of Fellows

The Inclusions, Mentoring and Fellowship Committee is pleased to announce the selection of the Business Law Section Fellows for the 2017-2019 term. As you may know, our Fellowship Program provides a two-year subsidy to six highly qualified applicants expressing an interest in becoming active in the substantive work and leadership of the Business Law Section.     Each Fellow will be assigned a social mentor, who is a member of the Executive Council, to assist the Fellow in maximizing his or her experience as a Fellow and attending Section meetings and events, as well as a substantive committee mentor to assist the Fellow’s active involvement in the committee that most closely fits the Fellow’s practice area with the goal of maximizing his or her professional development through the Fellowship Program.     Read their bio's Read More
