Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt is committed to the growth of diversity in the firm to reflect the rich diversity of our society. We believe that a diverse workplace provides superior service to our clients and an enhanced workplace environment for our attorneys and staff. We are looking for people who demonstrate aptitude, leadership, teamwork, initiative and strong verbal and written communication skills.
As one means of meeting this commitment, the firm has established a 1L Diversity Fellowship Program. The fellowship consists of a paid 10-week summer associate position in our Seattle or Portland offices for the summer following the successful completion of the first year of law school. In addition, the recipients will receive a $10,00 academic stipend to help defray tuition and expenses for their second year of law school.
Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt recognizes that diversity exists in many different forms, including gender, race, national origin, religion, age, veteran status, political affiliation, disability, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The firm will place particular emphasis on candidates who are members of groups that are historically under-represented in the legal profession and at Schwabe.
