Connect. Empower. Transform.

Through our commitment to fostering personal connections and sustained and targeted investment in diverse legal talent, we strive to empower our Alumni and Fellows with the goal of cultivating leaders, transforming career trajectories, and advancing diversity in the legal profession.

Administered by an elected Executive Council and assisted by LCLD staff, the Fellows Alumni program is a great way for you, graduates of the program, to continue your involvement with LCLD and the Fellows Program throughout your career, building on relationships and leadership skills acquired during your Fellow year.

We invite you to use this web site to keep up with Fellows news and events, take advantage of LCLD resources, and expand your professional horizons. Please spend a few minutes updating your Fellows Profile in the Directory, including the new "personal narrative" section at the bottom.
