The Stris & Maher Litigation Fellowship

We believe in fostering the future generation of lawyers and actively do so through our unique litigation fellowship, a program designed for recent college graduates interested in pursuing law school.

Litigation fellows receive broad exposure to the practice of law while working under the direct supervision of firm lawyers. They provide important procedural and substantive support on a broad range of matters—from trial court proceedings to U.S. Supreme Court matters. They learn what it is like working in a fast-paced, elite litigation practice.

Ideal candidates are smart, detail-oriented, and highly motivated, with stellar academic credentials. Excellent written and oral communication skills, and proficiency in Microsoft Office programs, are a must. No certifications or experience is otherwise necessary.

Recruiting takes place in spring, with fellowship classes (lasting two years) beginning in summer. Fellows earn a salary and typically work out of the firm office nearest to them.

Current and alumni fellows are noted below. If you are interested in being considered and would like to learn more, email your resume and a writing sample to resume@stris.com.
